Field to Fuel

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

With a focus on educating 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.

Official Contest Rules

Videos must be received and/or postmarked no later than Jan. 31, 2020. All entries must include an entry form. The top three video entries, as selected by a panel of judges, will receive the following prizes:

In addition, the winning entries will be featured at the Ethanol 2020: Emerging Issues Forum in Omaha during mid-April and will be posted on the Nebraska Ethanol Board website.
