Idaho Potato Commission Launches iTuber Video Contest Take II

New Category For Idaho High School Students

The Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is once again inviting Idaho Potato fans to work their magic in front of the camera in the iTuber Video Contest Take II. In celebration of the International Year of the Potato, the Idaho Potato Commission has launched a special category just for Idaho high school students .

2007 marked the first year of the iTuber video contest for tater fans (visit YouTube to view last year’s entries). “Consumers pulled out all stops last year with the videos they submitted to the iTuber video contest. It was evident that considerable time and energy went into the creation of each video entered,” said Frank Muir, President & CEO, Idaho Potato Commission. “We are very excited about this year’s contest and the new Idaho high school category
and seeing how creative Idaho Potato lovers of all
ages can get with their potatoes.”
