Stories from around the country were submitted, and the five finalists and their accompanying videos were announced in June.
"These finalists have shared such impactful stories with us through this initiative about how they have conquered a variety of pest problems," Barclift said. "We've enjoyed learning how these PMPs have employed their skills, using Bayer solutions to change their customers' lives for the better. We look forward to announcing the winner later this year."
