COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) – Ohioans can demonstrate their connection to Ohio agriculture and win up to $1,000 cash in the “My Ohio Agriculture” video contest. Ohio Farm Bureau Federation’s (OFBF) Center for Food and Animal Issues invites farmers, county Farm Bureaus, 4-H and FFA youth and all Ohioans to submit a video, which communicates a positive and informative message about Ohio agriculture and food.
Contestants must record and submit an original 1- to 3-minute video that must be uploaded to YouTube.com by Oct. 14. The video also must be submitted on the official contest site featured at http://bit.ly/MyOhioAg between Sept. 30 and 5 p.m. on Oct. 14.
Winners will be chosen in two categories. The People’s Choice winner will be determined based on the amount of views a submitted video has on YouTube. This winner will receive a $500 cash gift card. Multiple Judges’ Choice winners will be selected by judges with each receiving a $500 cash gift card. An entry that wins in both categories would earn $1,000.00. All winners will be announced by Nov. 30.
“Agriculture impacts Ohioans in so many ways,” said David White, OFBF senior director of issues management. “This contest is a chance to celebrate those connections while making a positive impact on the public conversation about food production.”
