Our National Primary Competition
Food begins with farming. Equipping our future generations with a balanced and informed insight into where their food comes from, how it is produced, and the impact this has on the natural environment around them, will help deliver a world that is eating, living, and growing sustainably.
All for Farm and Food for All, our new national primary school competition, offers teachers support and access to specific resources to help deliver high-quality learning activities and experiences that open young minds to why farming matters. Kindly supported by Food Educators, EIT Food and Co-funded by the European Union.
Schools entering the competition will receive access to the All for Farm and Food for All handbook and activity pack, whilst getting the chance to:
Represent their region as the Regional Finalist of the competition
Win an in-school workshop for one class
Win a farm visit for one class
Be named the ‘All for Farm and Food for All National Winner 2024'
Win a farm visit for up to 200 people from their school
The competition is open to individual classes for pupils in Years 5 and 6 during the 2023-2024 academic year, and schools can register more than one class. Registration must be completed by the class teacher, or the main contact for the class, to ensure all communication and resources are directed to the appropriate individual. Schools entering more than one class should complete separate registrations for each class.
Registration for the competition is key to ensure that schools receive the All for Farm and Food for All handbook and activity pack.
Registrations open on 19th June 2023 and will close on the 15th September 2023.

One class will be identified as the ‘Regional Finalist’ for their region and will win a fully funded* experiential farm visit. This includes a pre-visit in-school workshop from a LEAF Education Specialist to support the finalist’s day on farm as they aim to be crowned the National Winner of the All for Farm and Food for All National Primary Competition 2024.
From the eight Regional Finalists chosen, an overall National Winner will be selected and will win a fully funded* experiential day on farm for up to 200 people from their school, connecting the wider school with the farm to fork journey.
During the competition, all schools will have the opportunity to record pupil views and experiences that will be used for an educational video resource for the educational and agricultural sectors.
