The Nebraska Ethanol Board presents the fifth annual Field to Fuel video contest, which encourages Nebraska high school students to explore the importance and value of American Ethanol.

With a focus on informing the public about renewable fuels, students are asked to research, film and edit a two-minute video for a chance to win a $1,000 grand prize.

2019 Official Contest Rules

Eligible videos must be received and/or postmarked no later than Jan. 31, 2019. The top three video entries, as selected by a panel of judges, will receive the following prizes:

  • First place: $1,000
  • Second place: $600
  • Third place: $400

In addition, the winning entries will be featured at the Ethanol 2019: Emerging Issues Forum in Omaha in mid-April, and will be posted on the Nebraska Ethanol Board website.


The contest is open to students currently attending a Nebraska high school (grades 9-12 in a public, private or home school setting). Immediate family members of contest sponsors are not eligible to compete.


  • Video submissions must not exceed two minutes in length.
  • There is no limit to the number of participants in the video; however,
    only one prize will be given per video, not per person.
  • Video submissions must be original works and not contain copyrighted
    material or any material that is proprietary to a third party, which includes music.
  • All videos will become the sole property of the Nebraska Ethanol Board.
