Teen Ag

TeenAg helps secondary school students learn all about agriculture – and other primary industries too.

TeenAg clubs

You'll get together with mates and other like-minded people to organise events and activities. You'll learn about agriculture and develop broader life skills. 

TeenAg clubs are set up at secondary schools across New Zealand. And if there isn't a TeenAg club at your school, why not start one?

  • You'll have the chance to take part in competitions, have fun, make new friends – and win prizes.
  • You'll develop leadership skills as well as practical skills and knowledge that you can put on your CV.     

TeenAg comp

Have you watched the Young Farmer Contest and thought: "I'd like to do that!" – but aren't old enough to enter? If so, then the TeenAg Competition is the thing for you.

Every year, TeenAg runs a big competition alongside the Young Farmer Contest. Regional finals are held across the country – and if your team makes the grade, you'll be competing alongside the best in New Zealand at the TeenAg Grand Final. 

You can enter TeenAg competitions from 14 years of age.

TeenAg Leadership Pathway Programme 

If you hold an executive position in a TeenAg club (eg, chairperson, secretary), then you can apply for the TeenAg leadership programme. It's an incredible opportunity: you'll work with an industry coach to develop and carry out a leadership plan, and will connect with leaders in the red meat sector, gaining advice and experiences.
