"What makes the Grain for Good program such a great fit for cereals growers is that they're able to give back to the communities in which they live and work," said Carter Medalen, Bayer senior technical sales representative. "These communities support the cereals growers and it's great to see the donations helping the communities."
To enter in the sweepstakes, entrants had to grow 250+ acres of cereal crops in eligible states. No purchase was necessary, and entries were limited to one per person. Winners were selected randomly by a third party.
