Do you have a passion for teaching children where their food comes from?
Do you want to help bring agriculture into Kentucky’s classrooms?
Do you love being on camera?
If selected, you’ll star in a series of educational videos about Kentucky farming and food that will be released for the 2012-2013 school year.
This is a great opportunity for 4-Hers, FFA members and young farmers across the state!
Even if you don’t live on a farm, you can still apply!
(After all, some of agriculture’s top advocates weren’t farm kids, like The Pioneer Woman).
If you’re a Kentucky resident between ages 14-24 and you want to help share this important message, upload a 5-minute or less video to YouTube including your name, age, where you are from and why you want to be considered.
If you live on a farm, include it in the video and show how well you can explain agriculture.
If you don’t live on a farm, the Corn Growers encourage you to find a local farmer and interview them about a topic important to you.
The video doesn’t have to be “professional quality.” Any “point and shoot” camera with a video function will work.
They aren’t judging you based on your videography skills, they just want to get to know your personality.
The full contest rules are available on the Corn Grower’s website.
I know Kentucky has some great young agriculture advocates.
The real question is which one will be the Next Kentucky Farm Star?
