Wed, 19 Jun 2019 10:09:48 CDT

Syngenta Announces Finalists in Its #RootedinAg Contest, Community Invited to Vote for Favorite in Online Poll After a record number of entries, Syngenta is proud to announce the three finalists in its annual #RootedinAg contest. These finalists, who will each receive a mini touch-screen tablet, will now compete for the grand prize – $500, plus a $1,000 donation to the winner’s favorite local charity or civic organization. The voting period for the contest, now open on the #RootedinAg Contest page, also gives anyone who casts a vote the chance to win a $50 American Express® gift card through a special drawing.



The competition, which began in March, invited growers and other ag professionals to describe the person who most inspired their agricultural roots. Syngenta will feature the winning story in an upcoming issue of its Thrive magazine.



“Every year, we’re so pleased to help people share their #RootedinAg stories and honor those who have most influenced their agricultural roots,” said Wendell Calhoun, Syngenta communications manager. “Given all the great entries we received this year, it was particularly difficult to choose only three finalists. But we have made our selections and encourage everyone to read their remarkable stories.”



The 2019 finalists are:


- Kathleen Sylvia Kelley Amaral from Griffin, Georgia
Graduate Research Assistant
University of Georgia


- Krista Swanson from Oneida, Illinois
Farmer
Research Specialist in Agriculture Policy
University of Illinois


- Tammy Wiedenbeck from Lancaster, Wisconsin
Farmer/Co-Manager of Riverview Farms
Field Rep/Social Media Coordinator at Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association



Syngenta has posted all three winning entries to the Thrive website. Online voting, along with the judges’ scores, will determine the grand prizewinner. Voting ends Aug. 30, 2019, with Syngenta announcing the winner this fall.
