There was no shortage of creativity in the first ever iTuber video contest. Folks across the country were given a chance to win $1,000 for their videos starring Idaho's famous potato. From rap songs to operettas to science projects, it?s evident people love their spuds.
The winning videos made their national debut on August 2nd at SpudFest, Idaho's family film and television festival held in Driggs, Idaho. Founder of SpudFest, Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island, was present along with Lou Ferrigno (Incredible Hulk), Rich Fields (The Price Is Right) and the Governor of Idaho, C.L. "Butch" Otter.
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
