Power to Do More contest now open, $10,000 grand prize

Published:

Farmers have been telling their farm story for many years now through the power of photography. Corteva Agriscience encourages corn farmers to again show the world photos of their powerful inspirations as part of the 2019 Power to Do More contest.

The contest, sponsored by the corn herbicides portfolio of Corteva Agriscience, honors farmers and their commitment to their communities. Corn farmers can enter the contest by visiting PowerToDoMore.com by April 28, 2019, for a chance to win the grand prize of $10,000 for a local nonprofit of choice or two second place prizes of $5,000 for their selected nonprofits.

“Farmers are often the bedrock of small communities throughout the U.S. Many invest their time and effort working with local organizations,” said Lyndsie Kaehler, U.S. Corn Herbicides Product Manager, Corteva Agriscience. “The Power to Do More contest recognizes farmers not only for what they produce in their fields, but also for their exceptional commitment to the communities in which they farm. It’s been inspiring to hear the stories of past contest entrants and we are excited to meet more powerful farmers through this year’s contest.”

The 2018 Power to Do More contest winners — the Schroeders from Iowa, the Krauses from Minnesota and the Gutterys from Kansas — supported local FFA chapters and a county community foundation. Their stories are featured in three short videos that show their dedication to farming.

Photo entries may include fields, family, friends, pets, equipment — whatever means the most to the entrant. Up to 10 finalists will be selected for community voting. The finalists with the most votes by July 8 will win. Follow along on social media at #PowerOverWeeds.
