Results from the May 2020 Farm Journal Monthly Story Lead Contest


Last month, the eXtension Foundation launched a monthly story lead contest in partnership with Farm Journal in the Farm Journal Monthly Story Lead Contest group here in Connect Extension. Monthly winners, along with their Extension Directors and Administrators, have the chance to work with Farm Journal to further develop their story and have it published in Farm Journal media. The topic area for the May 2020 contest was about the important work Extension is doing to help farmers and rural communities create, conserve, or otherwise manage wildlife habitat.

@Jeff Goodwin , Interim Associate Dean for Extension at the University of Hawaii at Manoa submitted the winning story lead: Evolution of Screenhouses in Hawai‘i Agriculture. Read the full story lead here

@Lauren Hood, 4-H Extension Agent at Clemson University, submitted a story that was selected as the runner-up: 4-H Wildlife Food Plot Project. The full story lead is available here

Congrats to both the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Clemson University!
