It’s time to get those submissions in for the “Fuel the Future” video competition, sponsored by the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA). The annual competition awards a $1,000 grand prize to the Iowa high school student, or students, who create the best video about the benefits of biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel. The winning entries will be announced during the Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit on January 31, 2017 and on IRFA’s YouTube page.
Video submissions are due Friday, January 13, 2017 and should feature the benefits of choosing renewable fuels such as E15 and higher biodiesel blends.
“The video contest is an exciting opportunity for students to learn about the environmental and economic benefits of renewable fuels and earn a little money in the process,” said IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “We’ve had some great entries in years past and we can’t wait to see what creative new ways Iowa students come up with to educate consumers on why they should make renewable choices at the pump.”
Second and third place will also win cash prizes of $600 and $400 respectively. High school students in grades 9 through 12 needing some inspiration can view past winning videos here. For more information on the contest and official rules, click here.
