The 2020 Story and Video Contest Winners have been selected! The contest is run by the Utah Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Committee, as a way to bring a connection of Utah's agriculture from the farm to the plate.
The theme this year is "This Is Why I Farm".
Submissions were a true to life exploration of the ideas expressed in the theme, with characters and objects based in factual material. One of the winning submissions, Kiri Cook of Emery County wrote, "Farmers farm because farming is a part of them and their heritage, and it's their humane movement to support the people around them with food."
Story Contest 1st place winners receive $100, 2nd place winners receive $50, and 3rd place receives $25.
