A&L Great Lakes’ 40th Anniversary Photo Contest

Show Us What Drives You.

For 40 years, our mission has been to be the leading agricultural testing laboratory in the Great Lakes region. Why? Because we know that what we do has a real and significant impact on our customers’ lives. That’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly. It has inspired us to be the best we can be. Now, we want to know what inspires you. To celebrate our 40th anniversary, and to thank our customers for their wonderful support, we’re inviting you to submit your best photo from out in the field, (pun intended), for the chance to win great prizes and to be featured in our 2018 calendar. We’d love to see what drives you to do what you do.

To enter the drawing, simply fill out the form and upload your picture. Then likeA&L Great Lakes Laboratories on Facebook to see other submissions and contest updates. www.facebook.com/AL-Great-Lakes-Laboratories-INC-1401140780164630

It’s been 40 fantastic years. Of all the things we’ve managed to accomplish during that time, it’s the relationships we’ve created with customers like you that mean the most. We look forward to more successful years ahead. Happy Submitting!
