I am excited to announce AGCO’s first blog contest, launching today! We want to know your thoughts and we want to share them with the world. Your ideas of “articulating agriculture” may be featured on the AGCO Blog, so we can help spread your message. We might even ask you to become an AGCO guest blogger!
– If you are a college ag student, this is the perfect place for you to get some commercial experience for your resume and write about ag issues that really matter to you.
– If you are a farmer, you could tell the story of your family farm and the generations that went into building your business.
– If you just like to eat, tell us why you love the farmers who work so hard to grow your yummy food. You might even want to share about food producers or manufacturers you know or are passionate about.
However you would like to interpret “articulating agriculture,” we want to hear it. We would like to get stories from all regions and all types of farming. You certainly don’t need to be a professional writer, we are sure you have cool stories to tell that will help to articulate why agriculture is an amazing industry that provides food, fuel and fiber to the world. Everyone is touched by agriculture, so get ready to enter and tell your friends to join in the fun!
Submit your entries here by October 29, 2010 at 5pm EST for your chance to win. AGCO will then select 5 finalists that will be showcased right here on the AGCO blog the week of November 1st. You can then invite your friends and family to comment on your post either here on the AGCO Blog, or on the AGCO Facebook page. The winner of the iPad will be announced on November 9, 2010.
Be creative and get your thoughts heard.
