#RootedinAg contest
Katharine Girone, the 2018 #RootedinAg Contest winner, spends time with her grandfather and mentor, Kenneth McKee, on their family farm in Varna, Illinois.
At Syngenta, we’re grateful to everyone who has helped us firmly establish our agricultural roots. Now, we want to hear your story about who inspired you to be #RootedinAg. In exchange, you could honor that person by being one of three finalists whose stories will be featured in Thrive. Each finalist also will receive a mini touch-screen tablet. And if you’re our grand prizewinner, we’ll send you $500, plus we’ll set up a professional photo shoot with you and the person who has inspired you the most. We’ll also give you a chance to pay it forward within your community by donating $1,000 to a local charity or civic organization of your choice.

Here’s how to enter:
  • Fill out the easy-to-use #RootedinAg entry form below.
  • In about 200 words, describe who inspired you to be #RootedinAg.
  • Upload a photograph or video that visually supports your written entry.
The deadline for entering is May 30, 2019. Shortly after this date, a panel of judges will choose three finalists. Syngenta will then post all finalists’ entries on the Thrive website and ask visitors to help choose the grand prizewinner by voting for their favorite. These votes along with the judges’ scores will determine the winner. Online voting ends Aug. 30, 2019, with Syngenta announcing the grand prizewinner in September.
