After receiving a great response to the 2017 Power to Do More contest sponsored by Resicore® corn herbicide, Dow AgroSciences is thrilled to launch Season 2 of the contest.
Your customers can enter the contest now through Feb. 11, 2018, by visiting PowerToDoMore.com and uploading a photo that represents the power of their farm, for a chance to win a trip for two to their dream sports field in the United States and $10,000 for a community nonprofit donation.
Photo entries might include fields, family, friends, pets, livestock, equipment or whatever represents the power of their farm operation.
More than 130 farmers entered the contest in its first year, and Dow AgroSciences awarded $10,000 to three winning community organizations in Iowa, Illinois and Ohio, plus $1,000 each to the seven-remaining top 10 finalists’ communities.
“We were thrilled by the incredible entries in the first year of the Power to Do More contest,” says Lyndsie Kaehler, U.S. corn herbicides product manager, Dow AgroSciences. “Each entrant had a unique story to tell, and we are proud to sponsor this contest again to give more farmers the power to do more on and off their farms and to share their stories with the world.”
Three contest winners will receive a $10,000 community donation to help build or revitalize a playground, park, school sports field, community garden or other local project. Winners will also receive a trip for two to visit their dream U.S. sports field during the 2018 season.
The entry phase closes Feb. 11. On March 26, up to 10 finalists will be announced and daily voting will begin. The three finalists with the most votes by April 22, 2018, will win. Entries and votes will only be collected on PowerToDoMore.com, but everyone is encouraged to show off the power on their farms, and follow the contest, by using #PowerToDoMore on social media.
The Power to Do More contest is designed to give more power to farming communities, just like Resicore® corn herbicide does in cornfields. Resicore gives farmers power over more than 75 weeds, including Palmer amaranth, morningglory, lambsquarters, waterhemp and marestail, with versatility to be applied preemergence, postemergence or split.
