Frequently Asked Questions
Got questions? We’ve got answers.
Who is eligible to attend Cultivate?
Alberta high school students, 14 years and older, along with their teachers.
Schools can apply with a team of two teachers and four students.
What is an Agriculture Education Project?
School teams are asked to take their learning and share it with their classmates, school community, or beyond! Students may come with a project in mind, or they may use the Summit to help a new idea grow. Post-summit projects may be a field trip to a local producer, a celebration of agriculture at the school, sharing of knowledge through a class presentation, or any other idea you may have!
Where is the Summit?
The Cultivate 2020 Summit will be hosted at the Olds College campus, located in beautiful Olds, Alberta. Each participant (meaning both students and teachers) will have their own room in the campus residence.
Both students and teachers receive a full scholarship to attend the summit – this includes the program, accommodations, social events and meals starting with evening refreshments on Thursday, March 5th to mid-morning refreshments on Sunday, March 8th.
Travel arrangements to and from the Olds College campus are the team’s responsibility. Inside Education will connect schools interested in ride sharing and carpooling, if possible.
If necessary, each attending teacher may apply for a maximum $150 subsidy per day toward the cost of a substitute teacher for Thursday, March 5th and Friday, March 6th. Teachers are required to adhere to the Inside Education Supply Teacher Subsidy Policy, which will be provided to successful teams. Please see the Generate 2019 policy below as an example.
