As we enter the summer months, we would like to kick off our Iowa Corn 2018 Summer Roadtrip. Throughout this road trip we are highlighting some of Iowa’s greatest summer activities from tractor rides to hot air balloon festivals and everything in between, along with making some tasty pit stops, all powered by the fuel made right here in Iowa.
To kick-off the Summer Roadtrip, we encourage you to use the hashtag #CORNFEDSUMMER when posting to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about your favorite corn filed activities. Starting Memorial Day through Labor Day, we will be doing a weekly t-shirt contest to promote Iowa Corn. Use the hashtag when participating in anything from eating your favorite corn-based food to filling up with ethanol in order to enter one of four shirts given away each week.
We want to take you along with us while we tour the state as we encompass all things corn. Like any great roadtrip we have already scoped out our favorite stops to get some great Iowa corn-fed food. We have highlighted each district’s “Best Burger” and “Best Tenderloin.” We want to encourage you all to check out the list and see how many of these you can hit this summer and get a taste of all things Iowa.
As for the fun summer activities we mentioned earlier, we will be putting on many different events across the state where Iowa Corn is being represented. Below is the list of several events, and you can also find a full list of Iowa Corn events at Iowacorn.org/events.
