Deadline Extended for Innovative Youth Corn Challenge
Teams of Nebraska youth are invited to enter the Innovative Youth Corn Challenge contest by the extended deadline of March 30.
Youth teams will be challenged to implement a production practice different than normal and determine whether it increased yield. Economics and sustainability of the practice also will be considered. Yields, cropping history, and production information will be collected in the Corn Yield Challenge management summary.
Cash prizes and plaques will be given to the first, second, and third place teams. First place will receive $1,000, second place, $500, and third place, $250. Sustainability, crop scouting, and “extra mile” awards also will be given, each worth $200.
How to Enter
To participate in 2016, youth must complete and return an entry form by March 15 to the Fillmore County Extension Office in Geneva.
