The nation-wide competition aims at promoting youth employment in the agricultural sector by fostering role models of youth agripreneurs who are willing to work with and support other youth through knowledge-sharing, capacity building and mentorship. Through the 47 Champions Awards, the best 47 youth agripreneurs (one champion per county) are selected and awarded during the National Finals. The award package includes study tours, opportunities to attend technical training, mentorship support, exhibitions of agricultural products and policy dialogues related to youth employment in agriculture.
