Animal Agriculture Alliance Announces Annual College Aggies Online Scholarship Competition

09/06/2021

On September 13th, undergraduates, graduate students and collegiate clubs will compete for scholarships valued at a total of $20,000.  The College Aggies Online connects college students interested in a career in agriculture with mentoring by experts.  Participants are challenged to host events virtually or on their campus to discuss issues in modern agriculture with guidance from experts.  The 2020 program will allow students to reach contacts on social media and at club events.

 

Emily Solis, Communication Specialist with the Animal Agriculture Alliance stated, “As a former participant I was able to grow my communication skills through the program and find new ways to advocate for agriculture while networking and engaging with students and mentors that I’m still connected with to this day.” 

 

Dr. Alexander Strauch, Poultry Veterinarian with Herbrucks Family Ranch will serve as a mentor for the 2021 program.

 

The College Aggies Online program is in part sponsored by Dairy Management Inc., CHS Foundation, Iowa Pork Producers Association, National Corn Growers Association, Domino’s Pizza, Ohio Poultry Association and other businesses involved in the food industry.
