Grocery poetry, guitar-playing strawberries and bulk aisle dancing are just a taste of the entertainment provided by six winners in the My Co-op Rocks Video + Photo Contest, a nationwide competition challenging co op fans to fire up their cameras and unleash their creativity to share all the reasons their co ops rock.
Hosted by National Cooperative Grocers Association (NCGA), in partnership with National Cooperative Business Association, National Association of Housing Cooperatives, and U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives, the contest attracted videos and photos from across the country celebrating how co-ops of all types help build a better world.
“We’re continually impressed with the energy and creativity that co-op members, employees and shoppers bring to the My Co-op Rocks Video + Photo Contest,” said Robynn Shrader, chief executive officer for NCGA. “The passion people have for their co-ops is contagious and inspiring.”
Individuals submitted entries Mar. 1 through Apr. 30, with voting continuing through May 30. The public selected winners in “Video” and “Photography” categories.
NCGA awarded prizes to the top three entries in each category. First place winners received a $1,500
co-op gift card or donation to an eligible non-profit, second place winners received a $750 co-op gift card or donation to an eligible non-profit, and third place winners received a $250 co-op gift card or donation to an eligible non-profit.
