Enter American Farm Bureau's #iAdvocate Photo Contest!

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 4, 2016 - Farmers and ranchers are invited to share their stories about advocating for agriculture with the American Farm Bureau Federation as part of the organization's just-launched #iAdvocate campaign. Ten lucky contest winners will each receive a $100 Farm Bureau Bank gift card.

To enter, message a photo of yourself advocating for agriculture to the Farm Bureau Promotion & Education Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FarmBureauPandE. Photo entries should include an #iAdvocate white board or sign with a brief explanation of what you're doing.

Submissions will be uploaded to the "2016 #iAdvocate Campaign" album on the Farm Bureau Promotion & Education Facebook page. Once you have been notified that your photo has been posted, ask others to "Like" and "Share" it on Facebook. Contest winners will be determined based on the highest number of "Likes" received for pictures within the album.

"Advocating for agriculture is one of our key areas of focus," said Chris Hoffman, a Pennsylvania hog and poultry farmer and chair of AFBF's national Promotion & Education Committee. "We look forward to seeing creative #iAdvocate photo submissions from around the country."

The contest is open through March 25.
