Agriculture Means to Me" Video Contest
Capital Farm Credit holds an annual video contest for Texas high school 4-H and FFA members to celebrate National Ag Day. Students create a 30 second video to tell us "What Agriculture Means to Me." Winners receive a scholarship, with their 4-H or FFA Chapter receiving a donation, as well.
Students can create video at any time, but are not able to upload or start receiving votes until February 1, 2018. The contest ends on March 19, 2018. Winners will be announced on Ag Day, March 20, 2018.
Capital Farm Credit's branch offices statewide award at least one $1,000 scholarship to graduating seniors who are seeking an agriculture-related degree.
Contact the Capital Farm Credit office closest to you to request an application. All applications must be submitted to the student's local branch office.
