The National Corn Growers Association Ethanol Committee has created a new ethanol education competition. High school and college students are asked to put together videos that showcase five facts about ethanol in two minutes or less. Ethanol Committee Chair Chad Willis says this new project will help connect youth to corn-based ethanol. And thanks to the format of the submissions – he says they will be ideal for placement on websites like YouTube or for sharing through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
The winning videos will be posted on NCGA’s YouTube site, promoted at state events, showcased at county fairs and aired during national meetings. NCGA is also hopeful the videos will go viral for the general public to view. Competition rules will be posted on NCGA dot com (www.ncga.com) and promoted to colleges and high schools throughout the nation by early May and again in late August/early September. The contest will open sometime in early May – with the final deadline late in the fall.
