Animal Ag Alliance Announces Contest Opportunities to Win Free Registration to 2017 Summit

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 10:12:09 CST

Animal Ag Alliance Announces Contest Opportunities to Win Free Registration to 2017 Summit The Animal Agriculture Alliance announced today that farmers and ranchers who advocate for animal agriculture are eligible to win a free registration to the 2017 Stakeholders Summit. The 2017 Summit, themed “Connect to Protect Animal Ag” will be held May 3-4 in Kansas City, Mo. The conference will build on the 2016 Summit’s focus of taking action to secure a bright future for animal agriculture. Speakers will give the audience actionable solutions to take home and implement on their farm or in their business.

“It is vitally important that farmers and ranchers be involved in the discussions of emerging issues that occur at our Summit,” said Kay Johnson Smith, Alliance president and CEO. “We are committed to finding new ways to get the word out about Summit to this important audience and encourage attendance. We hope that offering complimentary registrations to farmers and ranchers through this contest will do just that, and look forward to welcoming the winners at Summit!

Free registrations will be awarded to the top entries in two different competitions - a blog contest and a photo contest. Discount registrations will be offered to the second and third place entries.

- Blog Contest - Deadline 3/1/2017

- Competitors need to write a blog post telling their “Action, Please” story. This can be something they’ve done to help bridge the communication gap between farm and fork in their community and engage with consumers about animal agriculture.

- Posts should be 500-750 words and must be posted publicly online.

- To enter, contestants should promote their blog post on Twitter using the hashtag #AAA17 and tagging @AnimalAg.

- On March 2 the Alliance announce the top three blog posts. Then, the top three will be up for public voting. The farmer that receives the most votes by the stated deadline will win a free registration to Summit!

- Photo Contest - Deadline 3/1/2017

- To enter, competitors need to share their favorite farm photo on Instagram before March 1. Entries must be posted with the hashtag #AAA17 and tag @AnimalAgAlliance.

- On March 2 the Alliance will announce the top three photos. Then, the top three will be up for public voting. The farmer that receives the most likes by the stated deadline will win a free registration to Summit!
