Results from the September 2020 Farm Journal Story Lead Contest


In May, 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 June 2020 contest was about reducing food waste and we received several excellent submissions! We'd like to thank everyone that submitted a story lead for June 2020. 

@Stacey Stearns, Program Specialist - Educational Outreach, University of Connecticut submitted the winning story lead,  Creating a Sustainable Food System Through Agricultural Production, Food Security and Safety, and Food Access

Congrats to Stacey and the University of Connecticut! We look forward to seeing the story published in Farm Journal.
