CRP Film Wins Telly Award
Congratulations to the Farm Service Agency for winning a bronze Telly Award for the production of the film “The Silver Lining — 25 Years of the Conservation Reserve Program.” The Telly Awards recognize the best film and video productions, web commercials, and local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs. Kent Politsch, chief, FSA public affairs, accepted the award on behalf of the organization on April 18 during a showing of the film at USDA headquarters in Washington, D.C. The 15-minute presentation documents the birth of CRP in 1985 and highlights improvements the program has made by providing better air and water quality through reduced soil erosion. It also points out how the program has created an improved habitat for wildlife.
