Cindy Hardy (L), Women’s Leadership Committee chair, presents a check to first place winners Logan O’Toole, Kaelynn Hunter-Prock and Shayla Park.

Clark County high school students Logan O’Toole, Kaelynn Hunter-Prock and Shayla Park received first place in December 2014 for their video entry in the 2014 Nevada Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Video Contest. O’Toole, Hunter-Prock and Shayla Park attend Moapa Valley High School (MVHS) in Overton, Nev.

Their video “Agriculture Affects Our Community” gave a tour of their high school farm and its impact on the local community in Moapa Valley.

“The video contest is great way for students to share an agricultural story,” said Cindy Hardy, Nevada Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee Chair. “Promoting agriculture through video provides an opportunity to share our industry’s message with a large group of people, including those not directly involved in farming and ranching.”

The committee received 13 entries from students around the state. MVHS students Bailey Kesl and Riley Fulmer took second place, and third place went to MVHS students Maddison Bush, Nathan Witter, Baxter Baker and JaLea Blasingame.

Each video answered one of two questions, how Nevada agriculture affects the world and how agriculture affects the community. Prizes for the winning videos were $100, $75 and $50. The contest was open to Nevada high school students.
