AMES, Iowa—The Iowa Learning Farms webinar at noon on Wednesday, April 14 will feature a showcase of the videos submitted to the Cyclone Soil Health Sweepstakes.
Held during the spring 2021 semester, the Cyclone Soil Health Sweepstakes invited current students at Iowa State University to form a team of creative minds and produce an original 3 – 5 minute video that demonstrates the importance of soil health to a specified audience. The competition allowed teams to apply their soil health studies and take an innovative approach to soil health education and outreach.
Liz Ripley, conservation and cover crop outreach specialist, will give an overview of the competition and the top finalist videos will be premiered during the webinar. Following the webinar, the videos will be posted to the Iowa Learning Farms Facebook page and attendees are encouraged to go vote for their favorite by Sunday, April 18th.
