Canadian Western Agribition Launches Volunteer Campaign

The search for volunteers is on for Canadian Western Agribition (CWA).

In partnership with SaskEnergy, CWA launched its 2024 recruitment campaign for volunteers with a new incentive program. 

Starting this year, new volunteers will be entered into a draw to win two tickets and a meet-and-greet with a superstar performer. Volunteers could win a chance to see and meet Randall King this year.

CWA’s Volunteer Committee Chair Mona Taylor says agribiton doesn’t happen without volunteers.

“Volunteers are the heart of Agribition. Their contributions are what makes our show the world-class event that it is,” she said. “For more than five decades, CWA has relied on the commitment of volunteers. It’s the reason that Agribition has been able to produce the calibre of the event that it does. Agribition 2023 was bolstered with 339 volunteers who all shared a common passion for the event, with some having volunteered for over 50 years!”

With its new volunteer incentive program, Agribition seeks the next generation of volunteers to progress the show into the next half-century.

“It’s clear that volunteers bring the spirit, enthusiasm and passion that drives this great event,” says Mark Guillet, President and CEO of SaskEnergy. “SaskEnergy has been Saskatchewan’s Champion of Volunteers for nearly 25 years, and we are proud to support all of the people who give their time and energy to make Canadian Western Agribition a success.”

This year’s Agribition will take place in Regina from November 25 to 30, 2024, and more than 350 volunteers are expected to assist the event. 

Volunteer roles include opportunities in livestock, student safety, information booths, driving, and hospitality. Some of the roles are adjustable for abilities and accessibility. All roles require a minimum age of 18.

New volunteers who sign up before Monday, June 17, will be entered to win tickets to the meet and greet.
