Amy Griffin's photo of son Tripp watching the rain clouds roll in from the vantage point of the family's Phillips' County farm field earned her the $500 grand-prize in Farm Credit's first statewide photo contest. The Griffins live and farm in Helena and are Farm Credit Midsouth members.
The I'm FARM CREDIT photo contest theme invited Farm Credit members from across the state to submit photos depicting how they embody the Farm Credit spirit of agriculture and rural life in Arkansas.
Farm Credit of Western Arkansas (serving western Arkansas), AgHeritage Farm
Credit Services (serving the middle section of the state) and Farm Credit

First, second and third place photos were chosen from each Farm Credit
Association's entries and all 10 winning shots can be viewed on association websites – myaglender.com; agheritagefcs.com; and farmcreditmidsouth.com.
