- Kansas Agriculture:
- Kansas farmers and ranchers are the face of agriculture. You are what energize the state through your hard work, dedication and goodwill. From a child experiencing his first harvest to a farmer taking care of livestock at all hours, we want you to share the special moments of agriculture life.
- Showcase the types of crop we grow and how we take care of the land we love to provide the world’s food and fiber needs. Enter photos that showcase the breathtaking beauty of working and being part of Kansas agriculture.
- Farmway Fan Club:
- Let’s celebrate Farmway being part of Kansas communities for the last 105 years! Take a photo of a Farmway location, a staff member out in the field, your grain truck weighing at a Farmway elevator, you wearing your favorite Farmway hat, anything Farmway related – get creative! Enter photos with a Farmway-related tie that features the cooperative.
Photos will be judged on quality, creativity and relevance to each category. Farmway will utilize different segments of the cooperative’s employee team to judge the photos. First place in each category will receive a $100 gift card. Second place in each category will receive a $50 gift card. A “People’s Choice Award” will be decided upon points earned through the Farmway Facebook page.
The winners will be announced during October Co-op Month festivities. For photo contest rules and additional information, visit www.farmwaycoop.com or contact Mallory Wittstruck at 785-738-2241.
“Farmway is looking for photos showcasing how agriculture touches your life, capturing the special moments, hard work, locally grown and breathtaking beauty of agriculture across the state,” said Mallory Wittstruck, Farmway VP Communications and Member Services. “We are excited to see the beauty of ag from the viewpoint of our communities.”
