World Ag Expo is calling for video submissions to tell the story of agriculture for a chance to win $3,000. The contest will focus on World Ag Expo's theme for 2014, “Feeding Tomorrow's World.”
Entrants are asked to tell the true story of agriculture and the people who work to provide the products we enjoy.
Entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges. The top videos will be posted at www.WorldAgExpo.org and the public will vote for their favorites beginning in December 2013.
“Farmers and ranchers are dedicated to providing us with a safe and consistent supply of food and fiber. We want the public's help to tell their stories,” said Jerry Sinift, chief executive officer of the International Agri-Center.
“The contest challenges you to come up with a creative way to tell the great story of agriculture, and we can't wait to see the results!”
The winner will be announced Jan. 31, 2014 and awarded the $3,000 cash prize. The top video will be posted on World Ag Expo's website; will play during the show, Feb. 11-13, 2014 in Tulare, Calif.; and the winner will be recognized at World Ag Expo.
