It's time to vote for your favorite anthem. More than 200 agriculture students submitted their renditions of the National Anthem for the 2013 FMC "Stand & Be Heard Anthem Singing Contest."

Starting today through July 14, an online voting period will narrow the field to 20 students with a chance at a $10,000 college scholarship and a nationally-televised recording experience.

"We asked students to show us their talent and patriotism, and once again they responded," said Tim Thompson, FMC Agricultural Products Group North America product manager. "We're very impressed with the talent of these students and the diversity of takes on one piece of music."

From March 1 to June 15, agriculture students across the country participating in agricultural organizations submitted their National Anthem videos online at

The 20 videos selected by popular vote will be reviewed by a panel of judges, including musicians and agricultural group representatives, who will then choose the four finalists. The finalists will travel to Nashville, Tenn., to take part in a professional Music City recording experience.

Finalist performances will be posted to the contest website and broadcast nationwide August 29 on RFD-TV. A final round of online voting will run from Aug. 26 through September 15 to determine a grand prize winner.

The finalist who receives the most votes will win a $10,000 scholarship. The three remaining finalists will receive $5,000 scholarships. Winners will be announced on Sept. 18.

"Supporting students who have committed themselves to the future of agriculture is what investing in farming's future is all about," said Thompson. "The response we received during the 'Stand & Be Heard Anthem Singing Contest' shows just how energetic and creative that future looks."

FMC Corporation continues to invest in farming's future by bringing innovative crop protection products to the industry, including two new herbicides, Anthem® and Anthem® ATZ. For more information on FMC crop protection products, please visit
