2023 National Rice Month Scholarship Contest

Entry Deadline: October 31, 2023
2023 National Rice Month Scholarship Contest

General Information

September is National Rice Month, a time to celebrate the harvest of the small but mighty grain that has captivated Americans’ hearts and stomachs for more than 300 years.

Nearly 85 percent of the rice consumed in the United States is grown right here on family farms across six states: Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Texas.

That’s a fun fact that not many people are aware of — and that’s where you come in!  The National Rice Month Scholarship Video Contest is an opportunity for graduating high school students living in one of those six rice-growing states to tell a story about U.S. rice.

Create a video or animation that in three minutes or less, shines a light on this versatile, tasty, home-grown grain. Educate, entertain, and tell us why you think rice is special – to you, to your state, or to the world!

Judging Criteria
– Creativity
– Quality
– Effectiveness in Telling a Story about U.S.-grown rice

Winners will be notified by November 23, 2023.
