RHD Advertising Challenge

Calling all budding designers, ages 8-21!! Do you dream of becoming a designer, photographer, or writer? Get your computers ready and enter our Advertising Challenge by July 1.

We have five (5) separate categories, but you may enter them ALL if you wish. They are: photography, essay, creative writing, livestock ad design and logo design. All entries need to be sent to Rachel,, by the July 1 deadline.

If you are in 4-H, FFA or any national breed association, you are eligible to send in your work. The judging process will include professionals, social media voting and RHD staff judges. Entering your work gives your consent to allow us to put your work on out in the social media world, so be prepared to promote yourself:)

Love the camera? Then take you own photos, from 2012 to recent, that focus on farm life and send them to us. We want to help boost your creativity! Send up to 3 pictures that fit this challenge.

Budding writers should enter their works, less than 1000 words, about the livestock industry. Think human interest, editorial or fiction: not educational or research type articles. These can be e-mailed as a Word Document or a PDF, with a cover letter including name, age and title, and be simple set up of double spacing, 12 point font. So, pretend you have been hired to write an article for magazines like the Show Circuit or Showbox!

The essay challenge will have two divisions and entries should not exceed 1,500 words. The junior division, ages 8-14, should address this topic: Do you think being active on social media is a good decision or a bad decision? What advice do you have to others in terms of what is appropriate posts for social media for a responsible young person?

The senior division should address this one: What do you feel is the role of land-grant institutions in today’s society? How has this changed, if any, from the original land-grant mission?

As with any type of writing, grammar, punctuation and all spelling will play a factor in the judging process. Spell check is your friend here.

Graphic design skills will be judged and our hope is to help enhance entrants skills. They may either be digitally done or hand created, and promoting YOUR operation. Send us your color, or black and white, 8.5 by 11 inch entries. Logos may be any size, however and focusing on the Tennessee River Music information on our website. We detail all the pieces that need to be included in the logo- Don't leave any out.
