The competitions programme is at the heart of YFC and is enjoyed by virtually every YFC member each year.

Not only is it a brilliant motivator for club members to have a go at something new and broaden their experience, it’s also a fantastic tool for counties and clubs to meet their charitable objectives of promoting education and learning.

Each year the programme includes a mix of traditional rural and agricultural activities, sport, art, life and vocational skills, as well as competitions that help develop the public speaking talents for which YFC members have become renowned.

Reflecting YFC’s place in modern society and the changing needs of young people in rural areas, the programme constantly evolves to equip members with knowledge and abilities that are relevant to their lives and careers, and promote good citizenship. Together with the valuable experience gained managing and running their own clubs, the competitions programme helps club members strengthen their community involvement and develop leadership qualities.

Besides giving recognition for taking part, promoting the spirit of competition and polishing personal skills, YFC competitions are also just great fun!
