Two competitions took place during the 9th Annual Canadian Agri-Food Policy Conference on Agri-Environmental Policy and Programs, from February 13-15, 2019 at the Château Laurier, in Ottawa, Ontario.
9TH ANNUAL AGRI-FOOD POLICY POSTER COMPETITION
Several researchers prepared posters that focused on the policy implications of their research. Conference attendees voted during the Wine & Cheese reception to pick the top three. The finalists summarized their research in front of the audience and a panel of judges the next morning to determine places.
