Phase II of the Alpharma student video contest is underway. The contest encourages participants to produce short videos that tell the story of traditional farming or livestock production.

The contest, launched in September, has three phases. In the first phase participants were asked to submit short video clips showing routine practices or daily events in agriculture. Phase II requires participants to select from more than 150 contest clips to create a short video. These videos can be posted to the contest Web site until Nov. 21. The final phase invites all participants and the public to vote for their favorite video. The winner will be announced in December.

“We are extremely pleased with the volume and quality of the work that students have submitted thus far,” says Jeff Mellinger, global sales and marketing leader for Alpharma Animal Health. “We are hopeful that this experience will help educate students as well as consumers about the importance of our food-production practices and technologies.”

The winning video will win a $5,000 prize. The contest is open to all college students and student organizations.
