Video Contest Rules
2023 Farm-City State Video Contest
The Alabama Farm-City Committee is excited once again to offer a Video Contest for high school students in the 9th through 12th grades. The contest is sponsored by Alabama Farmers Cooperative and complements the Farm-City poster and essay contests by providing students another channel to express their creativity.
The 2023 theme for all three contests is:
“Agritourism: Connecting Alabama Farms and Communities.”
Eligibility and Rules
Entry is open to ninth through twelfth graders. A $300 cash prize will be awarded to the first-place winner at the state level, and his or her school will receive a matching award. The second-place state
winner will receive $200, as will his or her school. The presentation must be created in video form and must relate to theme.
Images, audio, and narration may be included, but all components must be packaged with the video. The presentation should be 2-3 minutes in length and should not require live narration (by the viewer.)
Each student must complete the information form and submit it with their entry link. The presentations will be judged on the following: content, adherence to theme, accuracy of information, appearance, originality, and production. The presentation must be uploaded to YouTube.com and a link to the video included on the online application form that can be found at www.AlabamaFarmCity.org.
Students are responsible for ensuring their project is copyright compliant and for obtaining any necessary usage or reproduction rights for music, images, videos, or voice content. Photos and videos do not have to be original to the student, but majority of imagery should be reflective of Alabama agriculture.

Deadline for entry at the state level is February 2, 2024. Winners will be notified by mail no later than March 8, 2024. Award winners will be announced at the 2024 Farm-City Awards Luncheon and Program.
