The application period for the new Syngenta Drive to Thrive contest is now open. The contest asks growers and other agricultural industry professionals to describe what makes their farms or agribusinesses thrive.

In exchange, the 10 best entries will each receive a touchscreen tablet and leather case. From those finalists, one grand prizewinner will receive a $500 gas card and may be featured in an upcoming issue of Thrive magazine.

"We at Syngenta are privileged to share an industry with so many men and women whose talents and hard work make U.S. agriculture the leader in feeding, fueling and clothing the world," said Wendell Calhoun, communications manager at Syngenta. "The Drive to Thrive contest gives us a chance to reward and recognize a few of these individuals."

The process to participate is simple:

Click on the easy-to-use online entry form.

In about 200 words, describe what makes your farm or agribusiness thrive.

Then, upload a photograph or video that visually supports the written entry.

The deadline for entering is June 30, 2014. Shortly after this date, a panel of judges will choose the 10 finalists. Syngenta will then post all finalists' entries on the Thrive website and ask visitors to help choose the grand prizewinner by voting for their favorite.

These votes along with the judges' scores will determine the winner. Online voting ends Sept. 1, 2014, with Syngenta announcing the grand prizewinner in October.
