Essays On Conservation Tillage Will Earn Scholarship Grants

Third annual contest sponsored by Phoenix Rotary Equipment will reward three students.

Students interested in conservation tillage issues can turn their thoughts into college scholarship grants. A total of $5,000 will be awarded for the top three essays in the third annual Conservation Tillage Essay Contest.

The contest is again being sponsored by Phoenix Rotary Equipment. The the winners will be announced during the 12th annual National No-Till Conference to be held Jan. 7 through 10, 2004, in Des Moines, Iowa.

“The contest gives students a chance to get more deeply involved in a subject they care about while possibly earning money toward their college education,” says Russell Clark, spokesman for Phoenix Rotary.

Supporting Tomorrow’s Leaders.

“Today’s students are increasingly aware of the environmental and financial realities of farming, and they recognize the potential of conservation tillage to address both concerns,” Clark says. “That’s good for everyone, from growers to consumers.

“Phoenix Rotary is happy to play a part by encouraging students to consider the advantages of conservation tillage. The contest is one way to get them to think more deeply about the subject.”

Helping Spread The Word About No-Till

“The essays also can be used to promote discussion of conservation tillage within the farming industry,” he notes.

“We hope and believe that a lot of the participating students will become highly productive farmers and leaders in the industry. These are thoughtful, conscientious and dedicated young people who will help show the way toward the most productive, efficient and environmentally friendly growing practices.”
