November 11, 2014 - Issue #203View Full Issue
The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) recently announced the launch of the 5th Annual “Fuel the Future” Video Contest for Iowa high school students. This year, IRFA is seeking the best student-produced video promoting the use of ethanol, E15, and/or biodiesel. The top three video entries will receive prizes in the amounts of $1,000, $600 and $400 respectively; will be aired at the 2015 Iowa Renewable Fuel Summit on January 27; and will be featured on IRFA’s YouTube® channel.
“The IRFA video contest is now open, and we’re excited to see the creative ways Iowa high school students promote ethanol and biodiesel this year,” said IRFA Communications Director T.J. Page. “With attacks from ethanol and biodiesel opponents ramping up, we can’t wait to see how Iowa high school students set the record straight on renewable fuels through their highly entertaining and informative videos.”
The Fuel the Future contest is limited to students currently attending high school (grades 9-12 in a public, private or home school) in Iowa. Video entries may not exceed two minutes in length and must be submitted to IRFA via DVD, flash drive, or secure web link. To be considered for the contest, all completed video entries must be received in the IRFA office by January 16, 2015.
