The Agriculture Council of America is calling on ninth- to 12th-grade students to submit an original, 450-word essay or a two-minute video essay about the importance of agriculture, according to a Dec. 10 American Soybean Association (ASA) Weekly Leader Letter.

This year’s theme is “American Agriculture: Your Food. Your Farmer” and the deadline is Friday, Feb. 4.

The American Soybean Association asks teachers and parents to encourage student participation. The theme presents an opportunity for students to address how the agriculture industry continues to feed a growing population, acknowledge the many ways today’s growers are providing a safe, stable food supply, and the significant role agriculture plays in everyday life.

The national written essay winner receives a $1,000 prize and round-trip ticket to Washington, D.C., for recognition during the Celebration of Ag Dinner held Tuesday, March 15, at the Whitten Patio at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. During dinner, the winner will have the opportunity to read the winning essay, as well as join with industry representatives, members of Congress, federal agency representatives, media, and other friends in a festive ag celebration.

The video essay winner wins a $1,000 prize, and the winning video will play during the Celebration of Ag Dinner.
