Christmas in July

By Kristine Milbrandt, Creative Marketing Specialist

While many are enjoying July with camping getaways, barbeques and county fairs, is busy preparing…for the 2014 Ag & Food HR Roundtable. But we also have our minds on Christmas! And employers, we wanted to ask your help for a little project we have planned…

We’d like to invite you to participate in our very first Employer Christmas Card Contest. In the past, we have typically placed a company photo on our Christmas cards that we send to our clients. However, we thought it would be fun to get our clients themselves involved.

Take a photo or submit a drawing of anything that answers this question: How are you reminded of agriculture during the holiday season? The photo or drawing can be submitted as a whole from the company or from an individual within the company. We also welcome drawings from children of our clients!

Send your submissions to by October 31, 2014. Digital photos or scanned artwork should measure at least 300 ppi and 5x7 inches. The team will then judge photos and drawings based on quality, relevancy to the question and creativity. The winning selection will be utilized as the Christmas card with full credit given to the company (or the individual and the company) who submitted the artwork.

We are excited for this first Christmas Card Contest and can’t wait to see what is submitted. Season’s greetings!
