Corn fields along well-traveled roads in six areas of the state are being sought for locations of an E85 ethanol advertising campaign sponsored by the American Lung Association in Wisconsin Clean Air Choice® program, Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board and Wisconsin Corn Growers Association.
The American Lung Association in Wisconsin recently selected three scholarship winners who created a “Burma Shave” type advertising campaign – replicating the four or five line rhyme/rhythm pattern of the iconic road signs – to promote E85 and its air quality benefits. The signs that will include the Clean Air Choice ® logo will be placed along roads bordering Wisconsin’s cornfields.
The groups are seeking members of the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association to volunteer the edge of their field to place these signs in the Madison, La Crosse, Green Bay, Eau Claire, Fond du Lac and Stevens Point areas. The signs in the corn field will promote E85 as a clean, homegrown, alternative fuel. The signs will be installed by the American Lung Association in Wisconsin. Growers will be asked to control weed growth around the signs so they remain visible to motorists.
Corn growers who are interested in hosting the E85 promotion field signs can contact Tom Thieding at 608-575-9200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Clean Air Choice® Scholarship is supported by the American Lung Association in Wisconsin Clean Air Choice® program, the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association and the Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board.
