This is your opportunity to submit photos that capture the diverse ways young people are engaged in agriculture today and the impact it has on communities!!
Contestants must be a 4-H member, volunteer, alumnus, or staff and 14 years of age or older. All photographs must be taken by an amateur photographer. Visit www.challenge.gov for official contest rules.
Photos can be submitted on www.challenge.gov now through the end of the contest, July 2 2012. Photos should reflect on one of three areas of focus: citizenship in agricultural issues, how agriculture affects healthy living, and the science behind agriculture. All eligible photos will be available for public voting during July 18-August 1. The photos with the most votes will be chosen as finalists. The finalists’ entries will then be voted on by a panel of judges consisting of USDA staff who will determine the top winners.
The winning photographs will be prominently displayed within the 4-H/USDA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., during National 4-H Week, October 1-6, 2012.
The Photo contest and display are part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Morrill Act and Cooperative Extension.
