IRFA accepting submissions for annual “Fuel the Future” contest

By Iowa Renewable Fuels Association | December 22, 2016

With winter break just around the corner, Iowa high school students have an opportunity to make the most of their vacation by submitting an entry to the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association’s “Fuel the Future” Video Contest for a chance to win a $1,000 grand prize. 

Students have until Jan. 13 to create and submit a video that highlights the benefits of choosing renewable fuels such as E15 and biodiesel. In addition to the $1,000 grand prize, second and third place entries will receive $600 and $400 prizes respectively. The top three entries will be featured at the 2017 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit on January 31st and on the IRFA YouTube page.

“The video contest is an exciting opportunity for students to learn about the environmental and economic benefits of renewable fuels and earn a little money in the process,” said IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “We’ve had some great entries in years past and we can’t wait to see what creative new ways Iowa students come up with to educate consumers on why they should make renewable choices at the pump.”

Students must be in grades 9 through 12 to qualify for the contest. For official rules and information on how to enter, eligible students should visit http://iowarfa.org/video-contest. Former winners’ videos can be found at the IRFA YouTube page.
