Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs is encouraging young photographers to submit their photos for the 2019 Cream of the Crop Photo Contest before the June 26 deadline. The contest encourages young photographers to share their vision of agriculture in our state.
The treasurer’s office is accepting electronic submissions for the Cream of the Crop Photo Contest from Illinois students, ages 8-18. Top photographs will be chosen in three age-based categories: ages 8-10, 11‑14 and 15-18. Each student is allowed to submit up to two photos by June 26, 2019.
The photo contest is part of the Ag Invest program and offers an opportunity for Illinois students to submit their most innovative or scenic picture that depicts their vision of agriculture in our state. Winning photos will be featured in Ag Invest marketing materials and the 2019 Illinois State Fair.
Ag Invest is one of the nation’s largest agricultural linked deposit programs. It helps hundreds of Illinois farmers and agriculture professionals. The treasurer’s office, through Ag Invest, partners with eligible lenders to offer farmers and ag businesses annual and long-term, low-interest loans which can be used for operating costs, equipment purchases, construction-related expenses, and livestock purchases.
