Frequently Asked Questions

Will there be another Power to Do More contest next year?

That’s the plan! The response to the contest has been incredible and inspiring to all of us. The team that brings you Resicore® corn herbicide is proud to support farmers and their communities, so plans are in the works for next year’s contest.

How often can I vote?

Each person can vote once per day from now until May 21, 2017. So keep coming back to PowerToDoMore.com to help your favorite finalist and community organization win.

Are the vote counts revealed on the site during the voting phase?

No; we’ll be keeping everyone in suspense until after the close of voting on May 21, 2017. So be sure to keep voting every day between now and then.

I’ve noticed that my favorite finalist’s picture is in a different place on the site today than it was yesterday. Why is that?

To ensure that all 10 finalists get the most possible views, entry profiles will be randomly reordered on the site each day. For example, if an entry was in the third row one day, it may be in the first row the next.

How and when will I know who won?

The top three vote-earners will be notified after June 5, 2017. A public announcement of the winners will be made in mid-June 2017.

For a list of winners, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope by July 5, 2017, to: Resicore®: Power to Do More Contest, Attn: Winners List, P.O. Box 864, Brookfield, WI 53008-0864. Winners list to be available after June 5, 2017.

Tell me more about the prizes. What does “One dream. Two prizes. Three fields.” mean?

The Resicore®: Power to Do More contest gives three farmers the chance to win a trip to their favorite sports field. That’s the “one dream” — each winner gets to choose their own prize trip!

But it doesn’t stop there. Each winner gets two prizes: the trip, plus the power to help their community with $10,000 to help build or revitalize a local sports or activity space. A playground, park, school sports field, community garden or other local space — that’s a big win for everyone.

So that’s where three fields comes in: the two prizes are the first two fields. The third is the finalists’ farms — which you can see in the photos and stories included in each entry.

What sports events are eligible for the trip prize

Entrants chose their favorite team playing their favorite sport. Football, baseball, basketball, hockey, car racing, soccer — three winners will each get to see his or her favorite team play on its home field. Events must be during the regular 2017 season in the contiguous United States.

What is included in the trip prize?

The trip includes tickets for the winner and one guest to attend a sporting event at the professional sports field of the winner’s choice. Each trip also includes round-trip, coach-class air transportation, two nights’ hotel accommodation, and ground transportation in destination city as necessary.

The sporting event must be a regular-season game or event held in the contiguous United States before Dec. 31, 2017.

What type of community organization qualifies for the $10,000 prize?

The prize is designated to help build or revitalize a local sports or activity space. That could include a playground, park, school sports field, community garden or other local space readily accessible to the general public. Eligible community organizations must have 501c(3) tax-exempt status.

For more details please see Section 9 of the Official Rules.

What are the requirements for the community organization?

The community space can include, but not be limited to, baseball fields, football fields, school/community playground, community garden or other local space readily accessible to the general public.

Tell me about this documentary. Is it required for winners to participate?

We believe in the power of farming. That’s why we will showcase our winners in a short documentary film, showing the winners’ farm, their community space selection and scenes from their prize trip. Participation in the documentary is a requirement for accepting the grand prize — and an opportunity to show the world what happens when you have the power to do more.
