In addition to competing for over $25,000 in scholarships, College Aggies Online participants will develop the communication skills necessary to become confident agriculture advocates. Club participants host outreach activities to engage with members of their community and fellow students about agriculture. The club events range from reading to youth and hosting a food drive to sharing facts about meat, milk, poultry and eggs on their campus.

To see the students’ social media posts and pictures from their campus events, follow #CAO18 on social media.
