The Junior & Senior Member of the Year Competitions encourage YFC members to share their experiences as a Young Farmer, reflect and evaluate their contributions and achievements in YFC and the wider community through an application and interview process. The competitions provide members with the opportunity to develop their communication, personal development and presentation skills.
The Junior & Senior Member of the Year will have opportunities to become ambassadors for Montgomery YFC and encourage fellow members and potential members to get involved and promote the opportunities available to them, including events, competitions and training opportunities.
The winners of each competition have the opportunity of going forward to represent Montgomery at a Wales and National level.
“As my year as Senior Member of the Year comes to a close, it’s time to reflect on what has been a great experience. I’ve had the opportunity to truly understand how the Federation operates by assisting the County Officials and also understanding the challenges they face from time to time. There are a variety of opportunities to be had when becoming Senior Member of the Year. Give it a try this year, you won’t regret it!”
Lynfa Jones – Senior Member of the Year 2021-22
“My time as Junior Member of the Year has been unforgettable, even if it was all via Zoom! It’s given me the opportunity to work with the county officials team where I’ve gained the confidence to speak up in meetings. I’ve also had the chance to attend Wales YFC meetings as an ambassador of the county. It’s a really great insight into how the federation is run, and an opportunity you should definitely go for!”
Briony Tilsley – Junior Member of the Year 2020-21
