New Holland sponsors ethanol video contest

By Erin Voegele | November 20, 2012

New Holland is offering members of the National FFA Organization a chance to win $5,000 for their chapter through a video contest designed to promote ethanol. According to information published by the company, FFA members are invited to research, film and edit a 60 to 90 second video focused on why ethanol is important to your community, American farmers, our nation and the economy.

In addition to the $5,000 prize, the winner, his or her FFA Chapter and the winning video could be featured in New Holland marketing efforts.

All FFA members in the U.S. at least 14 years old and less than 23 years old as of Oct. 23 are eligible to apply. According to the official contest rules, eligible applicants must be full-time students enrolled in high school, college or technical school. Entries will be accepted through Dec. 17.

According to New Holland, there is no limit on the number of original entries that may be submitted on behalf of an individual or chapter, but only one entry per household will be eligible to receive a prize.

Each video will be judged based on two primary criteria; creativity in telling the ethanol story, and describing the important of ethanol to your community.

Directions on how to submit an entry and the official rules for the contest are available on the New Holland website.
