“Follow the Farmer” Finalists Announced, Vote for Your Favorite!

Rainforest Alliance’s “Follow the Farmer” contest will give two winners a first-hand experience at farming and forest communities in Mexico and Costa Rica.

Contestants were asked to write a 300 to 500 word entry imagining themselves in the shoes of someone they admire-- from a parent to a celebrity.

The contest judges included Danielle Nierenberg, President of Food Tank, Andrew C. Revkin, prize-winning journalist and author, and the Guardian’s U.S. environment correspondent Suzanne Goldenberg, who have narrowed the entries to five finalists.

The winner will be documenting and sharing their experience in the community they visit. Vote for whose story you would like to hear! Read the submissions and vote HERE.

Voting closes at 12pm EST on Friday, February 13, 2015.
