For Immediate Release

AMES, IA, March 24, 2020 – Being home from school doesn’t mean the learning stops. That is why Pivot Bio is inviting FFA students from across the country to share their continued ag education and projects from their homes and farms as part of the Pivot Bio FFA Video Challenge.

“Agriculture doesn’t stop. With events, meetings and shows canceled to help slow the spread of Coronavirus, Pivot Bio wants to encourage students continue their ag education with a fun video challenge,” said Mark Reisinger, Pivot Bio VP-Commercial Operations.

To enter the Pivot Bio FFA Video Challenge, FFA students will self-produce and post video on Facebook or Twitter highlighting the projects or work they are doing to continue their agricultural education. All videos must tag Pivot Bio (@PivotBio), the student’s FFA chapter and use the hashtag, #FFAVideoChallenge. The deadline to enter is April 13, 2020, 10:01 pm Central Time.

Winners will be selected randomly and will receive $250 for themselves and $250 for their FFA Chapter. A total of 25 winners will be selected from eligible entries submitted during the challenge. For a complete list of rules, click here.

“Now, more than ever before, the world understands the invaluable efforts of the agriculture industry,” said Reisinger. “These students are so critical to the future of agriculture, and we’re thrilled to recognize them to help encourage continued ag education.”
