Deadline for submission to essay contest: 1 January 2018

If you are a motivated individual interested in studying agriculture, design, technology or something similar, then Flowers Across Sydney wants to give you a $500 college scholarship and help you get there!

There are three disciplines that make Flowers Across Sydney flourish: agriculture, design and technology. Because of this, we invite any and all students studying a field within one of these three disciplines to participate in our essay competition.

The topic to be explored for this year’s scholarship essay contest is “How Today’s Innovations Will Create Massive Change Tomorrow”. This broad topic is intended to test the fledgling students view of their respective industry as well as how it is likely to change in the future. We feel that innovation is the lifeblood of any professional endeavour, and we want to hear your vision on how you expect it to help your industry.
