Last week, we held a spring preparation photo contest on Instagram using the hashtag #ilcplantprep.  There were a lot of great entries, and after tallying up the votes this was the winning photo:


Congratulations to Mary Beth Burtle!   She entered the contest in honor of her 87 year old Grandfather, Robert J. Burtle. He is pictured on his newly restored Oliver tractor. This was the first NEW tractor he and his father purchased together when he started farming.

We love seeing all your photos and now we are bringing the contest to Facebook!  Email your spring prep photos to ilcorn@ilcorn.org or post to Facebook and tag us @IL Corn AND use the hashtag #ilcplantprep by this Friday, April 11 and you could win a great prize just like Mary Beth!


With temperatures in the 70’s this week, spring has definitely sprung around Illinois!  To celebrate, we are having a photo contest on the IL Corn Facebook page.  Send your spring themed photos to ilcorn@ilcorn.org before the end of the week for your chance to win an IL Corn prize pack! 

We can’t ruin all the fun… there are more surprise goodies inside the cooler as well!

Voting (winner will be determined by the photo with the most “likes”) will take place through the first week of spring ending on March 23rd.  Winner will be announced on March 26th.  Enter your photos now and don’t forget to vote for your favorites!
