Spirit of Grains Competition

To celebrate our 60th Anniversary this year, GrainGrowers is holding a competition for children between the ages of 5 and 18 to celebrate their grain farming heritage and life on a modern grain farm.

What Do I Enter?

If you are a child between the ages of 5 and 18 who lives on a grains farm anywhere in Australia – or who has relatives who do – we’d love you to enter.

We’d like you to tell the story about your family’s history on a grains farm, which blends together the past and the future (e.g. show us how grain farming has changed from what your grandparents and great grandparents did and what your parents or relatives do today, including what you believe the future will look like). Each age group has a specific category in which they can enter:

15-18 year olds

Video: 2-4 minutes

Prize: Drone

9-14 year olds

Story and Photos: Maximum 400 words and up to 4 images

Prize: goPro

5-8 year olds

Drawings: 1 entry

Prize: iPad

 Entries open 29 March and close on 17 September, one month before the winners are announced at our 60th Anniversary Gala Dinner in Dubbo on 17 October.

When your entry is ready, submit it by filling out the entry form and emailing it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Please include a photograph of yourself with the generations of your family on the grains farm (we invite you to include historic photos of family members in this image of yourself and your immediate family on the farm.) With your permission this photo will be automatically entered in our photographic calendar competition, which will focus on the faces in the grains industry and will be announced at a later stage this year.

Not in the age bracket to enter? We would still love to hear your story. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
