Resumo: Fruit production requires high technological knowledge and it has an important role in creating wealth in different European agricultural regions. Although Portugal has a great potential for this activity, few young people apply for agricultural degrees, as they have a wide diversity of other higher education degrees to choose from. It is therefore needed to marketing the importance of this activity. On the other hand, fruit consumption is a dietary habit which contributes to a much better health and fights obesity, one of the worst health problems of the 21th century, affecting more than 50% of the adult population in Europe. With the aim of promoting the fruit production activity among young people, encouraging fruit consumption, and contributing to fruit valorisation, FrutArt competition was launched. The FrutArt competition, organized by the School of Agriculture of Castelo Branco, began with the production of four different life-size cold-porcelain fruits – pears, apples, peaches, and cherries. The fruits were designed by the School of Applied Arts of Castelo Branco. The white cold-porcelain fruits were distributed to students of 29 schools of the Beira Interior region, Portugal, who decorated them. The competition took place simultaneously with a national scientific meeting on fruit production, so as enhance the interaction among agriculture, education, and research. From a total of 2100 fruits produced, 1923 were distributed to the students of 9th form, as this is when students opt for the study area to continue their studies, and to students of 10th, 11th and 12th forms of Arts. From the 1351 decorated fruits which were collected, 232 were elected by the different schools and exhibited in different places of the country. The four best fruits were chosen by the participants of the National Fruit Symposium and received a money prize.
