Field to Fuel Student Contest

We are challenging social media gurus across the state to help us educate other students about Renewable Fuels Month for a chance to win a $1,000 grand prize for your school or organization.

Each spring, Nebraska recognizes Renewable Fuels Month to raise awareness about renewable fuels. Ever heard of it? We hope so! But not enough people have and ethanol, a renewable fuel made right here in Nebraska, is the only liquid fuel that helps reduce greenhouse gas and tailpipe emissions. We need your help to get the word out!

We are challenging students to create a full week of social media content demonstrating how you would educate other students about renewable fuels – especially ethanol. Videos are still welcome, but students are encouraged to explore other creative ways to reach their audience. Items in your campaign might include a social media calendar, pre-written social media posts, videos, graphics, contests, ads, personal stories, blogs, and more.

All platforms can be considered, but please include content for at least two of these channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Pinterest.

Official Contest Rules

Content must be received and/or postmarked no later than Jan. 31, 2022. All entries must include an entry form. The top three 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.

Eligibility

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.

Requirements

  • There is no limit to the number of participants per project; however, only one prize will be given per submission, not per person.
  • Submissions must be original works and not contain copyrighted material or any material that is proprietary to a third party, which includes music.
  • Content will be the sole property of the Nebraska Ethanol Board.
  • Only one campaign may be submitted per individual or team but multiple campaigns can be submitted by schools.
