Oklahoma high school FFA and 4-H members are encouraged to produce creative videos promoting farmers’ care for animals, consumers and the environment in a contest sponsored by Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers and Ranchers committee.
“The goal of the contest is to inform and educate the public with a positive message about farmers’ deep passion and commitment to their animals, the environment, crops and consumers,” said Mason Bolay, Tahlequah, YF&R chairman.
The contest, “Oklahoma Farmers Care: Doing What’s Right for our Animals, our Environment and our Consumers,” is open to any high school FFA or 4-H member. Entries can be submitted by an individual or by a team of 2-4 members from any Oklahoma FFA chapter or senior 4-H club. Only one video submission per chapter or club is allowed.
The deadline is March 15. There will be three rounds of judging with a farmer panel ranking the final three videos May 1. Prize money totaling $3,500 will be awarded to the winners.
