Applications for the seventh annual Thrive #RootedinAg Contest are now open online. The #RootedinAg Contest gives people in the agriculture industry the opportunity to tell their story, according to Syngenta. 

The company will award three contest finalists with mini touch-screen tablets and one grand prizewinner with a $500 gift card, plus the opportunity to tell his or her story in Thrive magazine, complete with a professional photo shoot with the winner’s ag mentor. 

In addition, the company will make a $1,000 donation to the winner’s favorite local charity or civic organization. 

To enter this year’s contest, interested candidates can visit the contest website and fill out the brief online entry form, which asks them to describe their ag mentor in one of two ways. 

Contestants can write a couple paragraphs and submit a photograph to support their entry or create a short video. 

The deadline to enter is June 30, 2020. To apply, learn more or see previous contest winners, go to
