This contest is over. Thank you for participating!

Tell us your relentless story by March 28, 2015 and you could win $1,000 for your local community.

Valent believes in the relentless spirit of the American farmer. That’s why we want you to share your story or the story of your neighbor, your family member or friend. What makes this person relentless? Tell us how their determination and drive has shaped who they are and how they farm.

How do I enter?

To submit an entry, you can submit a picture and text of your nominee. Or you can submit a video telling a relentless story. Once you’ve prepared your entry, with your information, just click submit.

What could I win?

You could win up to $1,000 for your local community. That means that Valent will choose five winners after April 3, 2015 and notify them directly. Our winners will be presented with a grant for $1,000 that they can give to a local 501(c)3 charity. In addition, a $500 grant to a local 501(c)3 charity will be given in each winner’s respective local retailer’s name.

Valent Choice Honorees

To encourage growers, families and friends to enter this contest, we’ve selected a small number of Valent Choice Honorees to share their own relentless stories, viewable on the View Entries tab. These honorees have already been awarded grants for their participation. They are not a part of this competition. We hope they'll inspire you to share your own story, one that embodies the relentless spirit of American farming.
