Video submission deadline is June 15 at 11:59 PM CST. The Grand Prize winner will receive $200 for a video release party and a personal movie poster of the winning video. An additional winner from each age group (ages 11-15 and ages 16-21) will receive a $200 cash prize. All three winners will also receive a t-shirt and two admissions tickets to the Minnesota State Fair where their videos will be displayed in the Minnesota Farm Bureau building.
The theme “Farmers Produce More than Produce” was chosen to promote to consumers the multitude of products produced by farmers and ranchers used in our everyday lives. This theme will also serve as the theme of the 2021 Minnesota Farm Bureau building exhibits at the Minnesota State Fair.
