Erick - I was born and still living on the family farm. We farm a little over 10, 000 acres and run about 550 head commercial operation. I enjoy the farm and everything that comes along with it including fixing, designing and constructing. Being on the farm I have been involved in 4H showing steer calves for many years. I have already been accepted into Kelsey Siast in Saskatoon for Ag mechanic and I have also been accepted into welding. Well attending High School in Midale, all Grade 10-12 students are given 2 weeks out of the year to go work at a job they want to try out. So for me, I went to places that worked with Hydraulics, Ag equipment, people and best of all welding and fabricating. Overall I am very excited to be a part of CWSF.
Jarika - I am currently in grade 12, and plan to attend university to achieve my Bachelor of Science. I enjoy sports such as hockey, volleyball, badminton, curling and golf. I also enjoy spending time on the farm working with my dad. Throughout highschool I have been involved in the mentorship program, and am currently SRC President.

Don't Flip Your Lid
Division:Life Sciences

City:Midale, SK

Abstract:Who would have thought such a simple concept these days could potentially avoid problems for the future in agriculture. The design says it all, combining simplicity and practicality. The main idea is to completely eliminate the use of over centre springs and elasticity mechanisms found on all factory bins. Weight is used to collapse the lid with ease.
