Kate Indreland Finalist for General Mills Award

Kate Indreland Finalist for General Mills Award

5/10/2018 11:29:00 AM/Categories: Popular Posts, General News, Livestock, Grains

Last January General Mills launched the Feeding Better Futures Scholars Program, which asks youth to share their ideas to help solve the challenge of feeding a growing world population.

We have learned that one of the five Finalists of the program is from our region, 19 year old Kate Indreland, daughter of Roger and Betsy Indreland, who have an Angus Ranch near Big Timber.

General Mills wanted to hear ideas that address hunger and sustainable agriculture. Kate Indreland’s entry focused on regenerative agriculture in beef production.

Kate will receive at least $10,000, but is in the competition to receive $50,000!  You can help, by going to FeedingBetterFutures.com, watching her video, and voting for her!

The public voting period to select the winner ends on Tuesday May 15. You can vote up to one time each day.  The public voting accounts for 25% of the vote. The judging panel, composed of General Mills hunger relief and sustainability experts will also score ideas to select one grand prize winner based on impact of idea, presentation and creativity.

Watch Kate Indreland’s entry focused on regenerative agriculture in beef production:

 

Here are a few more details on the program.

General Mills Feeding Better Futures Scholars Program:

• General Mills’ mission is to serve the world by making food people love and to do that for another 150 years, they believe that protecting the resources we all depend on is a must and that solving issues like hunger is achievable – if we all work together. That’s why, this January, General Mills launched the Feeding Better Futures Scholars Program, an initiative encouraging bright young minds to share the programs they’ve launched in their communities that help combat hunger and protect important agricultural resources.

• After reviewing all the submissions, General Mills selected five finalists who were passionate about their projects and already doing amazing work in the hunger relief and sustainable agriculture space in their own communities. Each of these finalists proposed a unique, in-action solution for hunger relief or sustainable agriculture and demonstrated a commitment to developing that idea within their community and beyond.

• To learn more about our five finalists and their in-action solution, visit FeedingBetterFutures.comand vote on the program you believe in most from May 1 through May 15. The grand prize winner will be selected in June and will be awarded $50,000 to help them further pursue their idea. The remaining four finalists will be awarded $10,000 to take their programs to the next level.
