Green Medal Farm

Green Medal Farm Contest

Entry Deadline: February 25

In 2021 AOA launched our first Gold Medal Farm Contest. After a great response from members and viewers alike, we've decided to bring it back. This year the 2022 Mazuri AOA National Alpaca Show presented by Flying Iron Ranch, Tierra Prometida Alpacas, and TXOLAN Alpaca Association is going green in the show ring — and beyond! Now it's time to showcase how your farm has gone green with a one minute video showcasing what makes your farm a GREEN Medal Farm.

  1. What sustainable practices do you implement on your farm?
  2. How do you limit your carbon footprint?
  3. How have eco-friendly practices impacted your farm life?
  4. Whether it's donating leftover fiber to be used for storm drains, oil spills, etc, or using sustainable grazing practices, or anything in between — how are you a Green Medal Farm?

All submitted videos will be judged by a third-party panel. The top three winners will take the podium for their medal ceremony at the Friday Night Fundraiser Banquet and Auction, sponsored by The Futurity by Celebrity Sales. Videos will be played throughout the National Show weekend by the AOA booth for both the public and exhibitors to see. Winners will also receive a mention in Alpacas Magazine and earn a spot on the AOA Nationals website!

This is a great opportunity to garner free promotion of your farm or business!

Winners will be notified by March 10. Winning farms must be in attendance at the Friday Night Banquet in order to receive their prize.
