Back to Football Friday “Show Your Pride” Photo Contest

Ever worn your favorite NFL jersey to the barn? Have a unique idea for your cows to show your NFL spirit? Here’s an opportunity to combine your dairy and NFL enthusiasm and creativity on camera!  The NFL is asking sponsors and partners such as America’s dairy producers to help kick off its “Back to Football Friday” school campaign and build excitement for the upcoming season. Through your dairy checkoff investment, your partnership with the National Football League introduced the Fuel Up to Play 60 program to America’s youth. FUTP60 encourages kids to “fuel up” on nutrient-rich foods, including low-fat and fat-free dairy, and get 60 minutes of physical activity each day.

So, as a dairy producer, you and your family are invited to participate in the “Back to Football Friday” photo contest by demonstrating your love for your favorite NFL team, the dairy industry and Fuel Up to Play 60 in fun and creative ways. For the contest, we’re asking you, checkoff staff and others who work with us to take high‐energy, creative photos displaying that pride, so we can submit as many as possible to the NFL.  It’s that easy! And if you’re the lucky winner, you will have a special visitor to your dairy farm – an NFL player!

Here are some suggestions on your photo(s) to get you started:

  • BE CREATIVE! Use NFL jerseys, t‐shirts, flags, caps, blankets, posters, anything NFL or team‐related to dress up the scene, yourselves, your family, your friends, your cows – go hog (cow?) wild!
  • BE ENERGETIC! Show action and passion for our NFL partnership and Fuel Up to Play 60!
  • BE APPROPRIATE! Don’t put on film anything that you wouldn’t want to get out in public, because we may use some of the photos at dairy shows and meetings to help celebrate our partnership. Let’s not have anything we need to apologize for!

There are three ways to send us your photo(s) demonstrating your pride, and be sure to include your contact information when you submit your entries.
