Show Your Pride photo contest
Detroit Lions, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, or Seattle Seahawks, which team has your family cheering each week?
We want to see how you, your family, your farm, and even your cows support your favorite NFL team or player. Capture your family’s pride for the dairy industry and support of your NFL team by submitting a photo to the Show Your Pride photo contest. And if you are the lucky winner, a NFL player will visit your dairy!
Show your creativity! In the past we’ve seen cows dressed as football players and cheerleaders and the newest generation on a family’s dairy sporting a very large jersey. Last year, the winning photo showed how one young farmer has supported the Green Bay Packers his entire life, even bringing some of his team memorabilia to the barn for his photo shoot.
Through your dairy checkoff investment, your partnership with the NFL has introduced Fuel Up to Play 60 to more than 70,000 U.S. schools. FUTP 60 encourages students to “fuel up” on nutrient-rich foods, including low-fat and fat-free dairy, and get 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
The best part of the photo contest is that the rules are easy and the creativity is up to you!
- Be sure to get your family and employees in on the act by wearing your team’s jerseys and other gear.
Send us festive photos of your barn decorated in NFL colors, team banners or posters.
Or take it to a different level and get your cows involved by covering them in a team blanket or some other tasteful gear.
These photos will be posted to a public website for voting. Cows should be portrayed in a manner consistent with their natural environment that showcases your daily commitment to their comfort and care.
The final step is to vote for your favorite photo. In mid-September, we’ll provide a link to the submitted photos, and YOU will be the judges. Remember to vote frequent and often.
- If you are a previous winner, you won’t be eligible to win the contest again as we want to ensure other dairy advocates have a chance to receive a visit from an NFL player.
Your local dairy checkoff staff can assist with brainstorming or other needs with your entry. E-mail your photos to myDairy@rosedmi.com, the contest ends Friday, Sept. 14. Good luck “showing your pride!”
