As part of the 2008 WPSA Schools Poultry Education Competition, the Year 6 & 7 classes of the Tintinara Area School in South Australia developed and published their own report (Show Poultry Handbook) on how the students came to learn about and implement show poultry practices.
The WPSA Schools Poultry Education Competition, with the support of interstate agricultural teachers and schools, successfully helped develop student skills in team building, report writing, experimental design and statistics. Apart from teaching students important skills and information regarding poultry production and the Australian poultry industry, the competition also provided an opportunity for students to meet poultry industry members and academics, providing a unique mechanism for transferring information through to the community.
