The Nebraska Ethanol Board Video Contest

The Nebraska Ethanol Board is seeking entries from high school students for their Field to Fuel video contest. This is an opportunity for students to not only learn about biofuels, but to create a video educating others on its many benefits. This could include supporting agriculture, saving consumers money, helping the Nebraska economy and providing jobs, its sustainable aspects including reducing tailpipe emissions and greenhouse gases, or other ideas the students come up with! The Nebraska Ethanol Board will select three winners for a cash prize, with first place receiving $1,000, the second $600, and the third prize receiving $400. You can read more here as well as download the entry form, poster, and tips on creating a great video. Submissions due Jan. 31, 2021.

As students put together videos, we strongly encourage them to go beyond just putting together a PowerPoint of facts about ethanol. Our hope with this project is to educate young leaders but also to use these tools to educate others. So we are really looking for some creativity! We have also added some resources to our website to make teaching about ethanol easier for all ages. You can find them here and here. Be sure to check out all the pages under the Educational Resources drop down menu.

Our health system and Immanuel especially have implemented additional safety measures to keep our guests, staff, and volunteers safe and we feel that Immanuel is a very safe place to visit, work, and volunteer, just as it always has been. Below is a list of safety precautions that are in place and will be for the foreseeable future to keep everyone that enters our facility as safe as possible:

  • Screening stations at four main, public entrances (all other entrances are closed at this time)
  • Required safety checks to be performed by all staff, volunteers, and vendors prior to entering the facility
  • Mandatory masking from entrance to exit
  • Mandatory eyewear for all public facing staff and volunteers
  • Intentional and more frequent cleaning and sanitizing of all public areas
  • Safety shields at all public facing desks and in the gift shop
  • Social distancing requirements in the entire hospital as well as the gift shop
  • Only one visitor per patient is allowed at one time and no waiting or congregating in the lobbies or public areas
