Three lucky farmers will receive $10,000 for their community and a trip for two to their dream sports field as winners of the Power to Do More contest, sponsored by Resicore corn herbicide from Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont.
The top 10 finalists were selected by the originality and creativity of their photo and story about the power on their farm. The three farmers who receive the most votes on PowerToDoMore.com by Sunday, April 22, will win. Winners will be announced this summer.
“We were thrilled to see the number of entries for the second season of the Power to Do More contest,” said Lyndsie Kaehler, U.S. corn herbicides product manager, Corteva Agriscience. “This year, many farmers shared pictures that embody the power of their farm and shared stories that showcase the passion they have for farming, their families, and their communities.”

• Shirley Schroeder, Iowa
• Shana Guttery, Kansas
