Texas Farm Credit launched its 2022 annual virtual contest encouraging local youth ag teams to submit a video spotlighting their agricultural project for a chance to win a large cash prize for their FFA Chapter or 4-H Club.
“Texas Farm Credit looks forward to continue supporting our local youth through this initiative,” said branch manager Dustin McClendon. “We’re excited that we have been able to adapt and redesign the contest to meet current needs. The contest this year encourages a group effort, and the possibilities are endless when a collective group of young minds get together.”
The contest is open to all FFA chapters and 4-H clubs within the Texas Farm Credit service territory.
Submitting clubs or chapters are encouraged to spotlight a past, present, or future ag-related group project in a 3-5 minute video. Participants should explain their project in detail, describe the goals of the project and if those goals were met, what life lessons were learned from the experience, and how this prize money would be used.
Entries are not limited to specific categories and all videos will be judged using the same scorecard whether it be livestock, science research, equipment, food production, welding, plant growth, stitchery, wildlife conservation, or any other type of rural related project or passion.
All video submissions are due by 11:59 pm on October 31, 2022 and must be submitted electronically at the Showcase. Each group is limited to one entry. All winners will be announced by mid-December.
The entries will be judged by a selection committee using the contest scorecard located on the showcase webpage. The judging scorecard gives points for overall presentation, creativity, design, content, and organization.
The Youth Ag Video Showcase is part of Texas Farm Credit’s Passion Forward program which has a goal of giving backing 2% of their annual net income to local communities each year.
