Due January 31st, 2020 - Students across the country are invited to enter the National Ag Day essay and video contest, sponsored by the Agriculture Council of America. This year’s theme is, “Food Brings Everyone to the Table.” National Ag Day’s objective is to celebrate agriculture and to help consumers better understand how farmers and the companies serving them produce abundant, healthy, nutritious, and safe food that nourishes our families and consumers around the world.

All entrants are encouraged to support their position with facts. As you prepare your entry, consider how you might draw on, or examine, some of the following trends:
  Global population is projected to reach 9 billion people by 2020
  Increasing global consumer interest in how food is produced and processed
  Popularity and growth of high protein diets featuring plant-based protein
  Health and fitness driving consumer food buying habits'
  There’s a shortfall of students entering agriculture, versus the number of job openings. In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that more than 20,000 agriculture jobs are left unfilled annually.
  U.S. farmers are among the most productive in the world. They proudly raise crops and livestock because they want to help feed hungry people.

The 2020 Ag Day Essay Contest is divided into two categories of competition: written essay and video essay. Both are national competitions.

Contestants must compose an original written essay and/or video essay with limited guidance from adults, teachers or agricultural industry professionals. Interviews with industry professionals are acceptable research; input beyond research is unacceptable.'

‚ÄčEntries should be no more than 2-minutes in length.
