Iowa Farm Bureau Federation and Iowa State University Athletics are giving basketball fans a chance to cheer on the Cyclones in Kansas City with the “Hilton South” Farm Strong® Challenge.

One grand prize winner will receive two all-session passes for the Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament on March 8–11, a $900 hotel gift card, Iowa State “Farm Strong” apparel and a $150 Cy’s Locker Room gift card.

To enter, visit and answer three questions about how farmers are raising high quality proteins, caring for their livestock and protecting the environment. Each correct answer equals one entry. Contestants can enter daily through Feb. 13. A winner will be announced on Feb. 27 during Iowa State’s final regular season home game. 

“To be Farm Strong means a commitment to hard work, integrity and taking care of each other,” says Iowa Farm Bureau President Brent Johnson. “This contest celebrates those characteristics which Cyclone athletes and Iowa’s farmers share.”

All season long, Cyclone basketball fans visiting Hilton Coliseum will have a chance to win grocery gift cards by testing their farm knowledge through Iowa Farm Bureau’s Farm Strong Trivia available through Iowa State’s Digital Seat platform as part of the ongoing Farm Strong partnership. 

Additionally, a portion of the sale of all Cyclone-themed Farm Strong merchandise and apparel benefits the Iowa Food Bank Association. To date, the Farm Strong initiative has raised over $30,000 to feed hungry Iowans.
