Florida 4-H launches Fresh From Florida promotional contest to support agriculture

4-H youth can promote Florida agriculture with new #FreshFromFL4H design contest!

WHY FRESH FROM FLORIDA? The “Fresh From Florida” program originated within the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in 1990 to promote Florida’s farmers and ranchers, and the products they produce. For 30 years, this trusted brand has been used to market Florida agriculture and seafood products across the globe. When a product carries the “Fresh From Florida” logo, it carries quality from the field to the kitchen table.Promotional post image

WHAT IS THE GOAL? 4-H’ers can practice communication and design skills while helping support Florida’s farmers. Help raise awareness of the Fresh From Florida brand among your friends and family.

HOW CAN 4-H MEMBERS PARTICIPATE? Encourage others to buy Fresh From Florida products using photography, video, graphic design or another medium you can share. Share information about an in-season product and how to identify a Fresh From Florida product, promote a consumer resource like a special website or perhaps your local farm. GET CREATIVE – photograph a Fresh From Florida product, create a social media promotional post or info-graphic, shoot a video, design a recipe card, poster or another graphic.
