Miss America spends 4th of July with harvesters
Miss America, 4th of July and wheat was the vision film Director Conrad Weaver had coming together. In filming the Great American Wheat Harvest, Weaver invited Miss America 2011 Teresa Scanlan to spend the day in Kansas for filming of the documentary film.
In a interview with KNEB/Rural Radio network, she shared on she spent the Independence Day holiday with two very different harvest crews being featured in the film. She spent time with Zeorian Harvesting of Manley, Nebraska, which is comprised of Jim and Tracy Zeorian and their two daughters.
She also spent time with Deibert Harvesting of Colby, Kansas. Jim Deibert has one of the largest harvest crews in the nation with 11 hired men, five combines. He has been harvesting for more than 40 years.
During the filming, Scanlan asked custom harvesters questions about what their job and lifestyle is like through the harvest.
The Great American Wheat Harvest film is documenting wheat harvest from Texas north into Canada. As a spokesperson and advocate for the film 4th of July is the only day Scanlan will appear in the film.
Scanlan will continue to work with the US Custom Harvesters Association. Between now and the release she will continue to raise awareness and promote the film.
The Great American Wheat Harvest Movie will debut at the 2014 National Ag Day Event on March 25th in Washington DC.
