Tell your ag story through #RootedInAg contest

Application deadline is June 30, 2020, applications may either be written or video.

The seventh annual Thrive #RootedinAg Contest is now open online at www.syngentathrive.com/contest.

Syngenta will award three contest finalists with mini touch-screen tablets and one grand prizewinner with a $500 gift card, plus the opportunity to tell his or her story in Thrive magazine, complete with a professional photo shoot with the winner's ag mentor. In addition, the company will make a $1,000 donation to the winner's favorite local charity or civic organization.

2019 #RootedinAg Contest winner Tammy Wiedenbeck honored her brother in her grand prizewinning essay.

"In the ag community we regularly push each other to do a better job of telling 'our story'," said Pam Caraway, communications lead at Syngenta. "The #RootedinAg Contest gives people in our industry the opportunity to tell their story – and see it amplified in our communities and across our country. You have a good story to tell. Share it."

To enter this year's contest, interested candidates can visit the contest website and fill out the brief online entry form, which asks them to describe their ag mentor in one of two ways:

  • Write a paragraph or two (about 200 words) and submit a photograph that visually supports their written entry, or
  • Create a short video (from 1 to 3 minutes).

Instructions on how to upload photographs and videos to the website are on the entry form.

The deadline to enter is June 30, 2020. Shortly after this date, a panel of judges will select three finalists. Syngenta will then post all finalists' entries on the Thrive website and ask visitors to help choose the grand prizewinner by voting for their favorite. These votes along with the judges' scores will determine the winner. Online voting ends on Sept. 15, 2020, with Syngenta announcing the grand prizewinner in October.
