Biotechnology contest could win you a trip to Hawaii

The Hawaii Farm Bureau Federation and Hawaii Crop Improvement Association are sponsoring “Views from the Farm,” a contest inviting farmers to share their stories about how biotechnology has impacted their agricultural viability.  Submissions will be published in a booklet that will be used to inform the public about the importance of biotechnology in different areas of farming.

Submissions must be 1,000 words or less. Recommended topics include: reduced pesticide use; increased yield; enhanced environmental stewardship of land, energy and water; and improved economic sustainability (lower production costs). The submission deadline is Nov. 30.  Five winners will receive a one-week, all expenses paid trip to Hawaii for two in February 2013 during which they will be asked to share their personal stories with business leaders, lawmakers and the media. For more information, contact Alicia Maluafiti at HCIA, at or 808-224-3648.
