Manna Pro 4-H alumni credit 4-H participation for career development and industry leadership
Manna Pro continues its Nurturing Life mission with a “Calling All Champions” 4-H Photo Mosaic Sweepstakes and matching fundraiser benefiting 4-H state and national programs.
4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, empowering nearly six million youth across the country with the skills to lead for a lifetime. Many Manna Pro 4-H alumni attribute their participation in 4-H as a pivotal experience where they learned life skills like responsibility, compassion, and leadership – all skills that contribute to their success in the animal health industry.
“I chose Manna Pro because of strong equine presence in the industry with exciting opportunity within multiple other species,” noted Natalie Bullock, Manna Pro Territory Sales Manager. “I feel 4-H helped give me a strong foundation of knowledge to effectively communicate with my customers today.”
4-H members, alumni, and supporters may enter a “what it means to be a champion” themed photo representing their 4-H participation. The photo can be of an individual or a group. Photo submissions will be accepted on the Manna Pro website or by mail through April 30th.
“I got involved in 4-H as a very young child showing hogs. Showing hogs helped me realize my love for livestock and was a huge reason I went to school for an Animal Science degree” expressed Kourtney Miller, Manna Pro Territory Sales Manager. “All of this made it easy to choose Manna Pro to start growing my career with their focus on their products to help nurture life.”
Entries and donations are accepted through April 30th. The winnings go to the state with the highest rate of participation, and currently, Vermont is leading, followed closely by Ohio and Wyoming in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
All “Calling All Champions” Sweepstakes’ photo submissions will be compiled in a virtual mosaic viewable on the Manna Pro website.
Participants submitting eligible photo entries will each receive $50 in Manna Pro product coupons via e-mail. Any participant making a donation exceeding $5 will receive a coupon for $10 off any Manna Pro product purchase of $50 or more.
Donations to 4-H may be made on the Manna Pro website, and Manna Pro will match all 4-H online donations up to $10,000.
“Manna Pro is fortunate to employ many 4-H alumni that credit their 4-H participation as being a supporting foundation for their Manna Pro careers,” noted Teri Nichols, Manna Pro Equine Brand Manager. “We’re honored to sponsor 4-H and their work in nurturing youth development which perfectly aligns with Manna Pro’s mission, Nurturing Life.”
The 3 states garnering the most photo entries will be named contest winners. Prizes are 1st place ~ $6000 and Manna Pro Champion pins, 2nd place ~ $3000, and 3rd place ~ $1000. Winners will be announced on May 15th, 2020.
