#RootedinAg Contest Now Accepting Entries

Share how your agricultural roots are helping you, your family and your community thrive and you might win a prize.
A parent, grandparent, teacher or friend—so many people can positively impact the direction we choose to take in life. At Syngenta, we’re grateful to everyone who has helped us firmly establish our agricultural roots, which extend to farms across the country and around the world.

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 five 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 a $500 gift card that you can share with 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.
  • On the form, describe in about 200 words who inspired you to be #RootedinAg.
  • When prompted, upload a photograph or video that visually supports your written entry.

The deadline for entering is June 30, 2017. Shortly after this date, a panel of judges will choose five 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 Sept. 15, 2017, with Syngenta announcing the grand prizewinner in October.
