Say thanks, help youth: Vote now to help 4-H win $100,000

It’s the time of year when people’s thoughts turn to giving thanks. In keeping with the season, Farm Credit Mid-America has launched its 299 Ways to Say Thanks campaign aimed at acknowledging farmers, customers and the rural community for all they do to invest in and secure the future of agriculture and rural America.

One way Farm Credit is expressing gratitude to the organizations that make rural America and agriculture unique and successful is by inviting farmers, customers and community members to help choose an organization to receive a $100,000 special funding boost from the financial services cooperative. The organizations, all of which serve young people in agriculture, are 4-H, FFA and the Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers Program.

To cast your vote, visit before Jan. 1, 2015. (Note: You can vote once a day from now through the end of the contest. 4-H is listed first. After you click your choice, be sure to scroll down and click “Submit Vote.”)—Farm Credit Mid-America
