FARM BUREAU LAUNCHES FARM WORK VIDEO CONTEST
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- American Farm Bureau Federation members from across the nation are invited to shoot and share their best home videos posted to YouTube of just how challenging, arduous and grungy farm and ranch work can be.
And, if their real-life farm and ranch jobs are tough enough and compelling in video format, they will have a chance to see their video on the big screen, in front of 5,000 or so other farmers and ranchers attending the 2011 AFBF Annual Meeting, Jan. 9-11, in Atlanta.
It's all part of AFBF's Farm/Ranch Families Work video contest. The deadline for the contest is Dec. 29, 2010. Once members have their hard-work videos posted to YouTube, all they need to do is send a link before the deadline date to FBWORKS@fb.org.
The video contest draws on the annual meeting's overall theme of "Producing Results," and is well-matched with the subject of hard work, which is often the favorite topic of our keynote speaker Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs program.
The winning video submitted by a Farm Bureau member will be featured during the 2011 AFBF Annual Meeting Closing General Session, Monday, Jan. 10.
A full listing of the contest rules can be found here.
The Alabama Farmers Federation, the state's largest farm organization, is a member of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
