National Wheat Foundation Announces 2015 Wheat Harvest Photo Contest Winners

The National Wheat Foundation (NWF) launched the 2015 Wheat Harvest Photo Contest in June to celebrate America’s wheat harvest and wheat farmers. Today, NWF is proud to announce the winners of that contest.

Over 300 photos were submitted through e-mail and shared on NWF’s Facebook page and website. NWF’s directors voted to determine the winning photos.

First place, receiving an iPad, is Michelle Jones. Michelle’s photo was taken near Broadview, Mont. The three runners up, each receiving a $50 gift card, are Brittany Van Driesten’s photo taken near Danville, Kan., Casey Graham’s photo taken near Simla, Colo., and Brenna Rietmann’s photo taken near Ione, Ore. The winning photos will be displayed in the Wheat Growers office in Washington, D.C.

“We are extremely honored to have launched this contest that truly showcased the heart of America’s wheat harvest,” said NWF chairman and Colorado wheat farmer, Dusty Tallman. “This contest was created to thank America’s wheat farmers, and the entries did a whole lot more than just sending thanks. The entries commemorated and illustrated the importance of our 2015 wheat harvest. Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and shared the American wheat harvest story.”
