Harvest Photo Contest

Wheat harvest is a wonderful time around Kanza Cooperative Association. It is awesome to see our employees and members work together to bring in the crop successfully.  To help us capture some of the special moments that come along with harvest, we will be holding a harvest photo contest this year.

We encourage our members, employees and friends to submit pictures via our Facebook page. Get creative and show us what harvest means to you.

Submissions will be accepted from June 1- July 6. Finalists will be selected in four categories A) Landscapes, B) People, C) Kanza Proud and D) employee submissions. Kanza Coop Facebook followers will be able to vote for their favorite submissions during the week of July 9. Winners will receive a Kanza Prize Pack.
