St Raphael’s is currently locked in a “state of origin” battle in voting for the award with Queensland School Beaudesert High.
Sow-phie is the school’s entry into the competition and symbolises "sowing" the seeds for attitude change and embracing new technologies in agriculture.
St Raphael’s student Katie Brown put together a video presentation highlighting the importance of the grain industry to Cowra.
The Archibull Prize is an innovative hands on program that sees urban and rural schools research an agricultural industry and express their findings through artwork.
This year thousands of primary and secondary students, from rural and urban schools, have spent the past two terms exploring the 2017 competition theme ‘Feeding, Clothing and Powering a Hungry Nation is a Shared Responsibility’.
Founder of the Archibull prize, Lynne Strong, said the school had done a wonderful job on their entry.
“They (the school) have embraced the program in the why we hope the program will be embraced,” she said.
“Right from the start you can tell they threw themselves into it 100 per cent. I’m really excited that the school embraced science and technology and have created a cow that will show the world that connection,” Ms Strong said.
