Texas Farm Credit recently announced the winners of their Youth Ag Video Showcase and the recipients of the $20,000 cash pot prize.

The showcase encouraged local youth to submit a 2-3 minute video spotlighting their agricultural project or passion. The entries were judged by an employee selection committee using the contest scorecard located on the showcase webpage. The scorecard gave points for overall presentation, creativity, design, content, and organization.
