Field to Fuel Student Video Contest

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 for your school or organization. Videos should not just be slide shows of “facts” about ethanol but should resemble a marketing video or commercial as to why people should use ethanol.

Official Contest Rules

Videos must be received and/or postmarked no later than Jan. 31, 2022. All entries must include an entry form. 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 announced in press releases to local media. Winners will be requested to submit group pictures.


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.
  • Videos will be the sole property of the Nebraska Ethanol Board.
