Young Agricultural Professionals between the ages of 18 and 35 are reminded of upcoming deadlines for Ohio Farm Bureau’s Young Ag Professionals’ contests. In addition to other awards, winners of each competition will receive an expense-paid trip to compete at the 2012 American Farm Bureau annual meeting in Hawaii.

A new requirement this year provides contestants with the opportunity to introduce themselves, talk about their passion for agriculture and the value of Farm Bureau membership in a one-to-three minute video clip.

“The new video component of our contests will help build confidence in our young professionals to speak out on behalf of agriculture and get them more comfortable telling their farm story,” said OFBF Director of Leadership Development Darrell Rubel.
