The contest was designed to celebrate the hard work farmers do every day and was an extension of the Firestone Ag Farm Hard campaign launched earlier this year, which applauds the farmers who push through challenges to get a job done. 

“We are proud of the farmers we have the privilege of partnering with. This contest was a fun way to show their commitment and grit to farming,” said Cindy Ridge, brand manager, Firestone Ag. “It’s a great opportunity to highlight their day to day experiences and achievements.”

Four contest winners were chosen for their remarkable Farm Hard story, and each will receive a $2,500 voucher for Firestone Ag products as the contest prize. Firestone Ag will feature the winners in 2018 marketing materials. The winners are:

To enter the Firestone Ag What Drives You? contest, participants were required to submit a 30-second or less video showing how they Farm Hard. Videos were received from farmers across the country. The videos submitted by the finalists were shared on the Firestone Ag Facebook page, and the community voted on two of their favorite videos, while Firestone Ag chose the other two.

“Each submission we received was a story of great determination, so choosing only two winners was a difficult task,” said Ridge. “We want to offer heartfelt congratulations to the winners and also appreciation to all the farmers who submitted videos.
