The ethanol organization announced the winners of the “Fuel on the Fourth” contest offering nearly $300 in flex fuel cards to Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) owners. Contestants had one month to submit a photo of themselves with their FFV along with a caption describing why they choose to buy flex fuel for their vehicle.
Two winners were selected from the submissions. First place winner Jane Marie Connell of Granite Falls, Minn. and second place winner Harvey Fliehs III of Groton, S.D. will receive flex fuel cards worth $185 and $85 respectively, to be used for the purchase of flex fuel for their vehicles. Both winners will receive their cards in time for the Independence Day weekend.
Connell’s name was chosen through a random drawing for the first place prize while second place winner Fliehs was selected for his creative submission and photo (pictured). In his submission, Fliehs, a farmer in South Dakota, wrote, “Using flex fuel is an everyday reminder that the corn we produce is making a positive impact on our community, environment and country. Our family is a 3rd generation farm, where not only the farm is passed down but the name as well. We’re proud to provide a sustainable fuel source that we can pass down to generations to come.”
