International Federation of Agricultural Journalists reports:

The International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) announced today the recipients of the 2022 IFAJ/Alltech Young Leaders in Agricultural Journalism Award.

This year's program, sponsored by Alltech, honors 10 young agricultural journalists and communicators who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in reporting as well as excellent potential as leaders of the industry in the years to come. The honorees were chosen by an international jury among applicants from many of IFAJ's 56 member countries.

This year's IFAJ/Alltech Young Leaders are:

*Megan Schilling, USA, Successful Farming

*Megan Hughes, Australia, ABC

*Becky Zimmer, Canada, Pattison Media

*Maria Wehrle, Germany, Badischer Landwirtschafts-Verlag

*Hannah Binns, Great Britain, Farmers Guardian

*Tracey Donaghey, Ireland, Ulster Farmers' Union

*Tamba Tengbeh, Sierra Leone, Regional Rice Value Chain Project

*Daud Abdi Daud Dimbil, Somalia, Freelancer

*Cecilia Persson, Sweden, Lantbrukets Affärstidning

*Yero S Bah, The Gambia, Mansa Banko Online Newspaper

"The importance of strong journalism in communicating agriculture's truth in today's world cannot be overstated," said Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech. "We are proud to support the next generation of journalists who are passionate about sharing the real stories of the farm and field, and the men and women who work tirelessly to feed our planet."

The 10 honorees will attend the 2022 IFAJ Congress in Vingsted, Denmark, in June. The Young Leaders will also participate in a Boot Camp in the days prior to Congress which includes professional development and networking workshops and farm visits in the region.

"The IFAJ/Alltech Young Leaders program has helped strengthen many individual careers, as well supporting many IFAJ member guilds," says Adalberto Rossi, IFAJ secretary general. "Bringing together these talented, motivated and energetic young professionals is always a highlight of the year, and this will be especially so after the disruption of the pandemic.

"Many of our organization's dedicated volunteers are alumni of the Young Leaders program, which is true testament to how it helps build IFAJ year after year. We are grateful to Alltech for its long-term commitment to the future of agricultural journalism, and very excited to meet the Young Leaders of 2022."
