December 2, 2014 – Today, the Animal Agriculture Alliance announced the results of its sixth annual College Aggies Online (CAO) scholarship competition. The nationwide program helps college students share agriculture’s story and become passionate spokespeople on behalf of the food and fiber industries.
CAO is an online competition open to all college students with an interest in agriculture. Since its launch in 2009, more than 2,500 college students from more than 160 different colleges and universities have registered to compete in the program. The Alliance wishes to thank the 2014 College Aggies Program sponsors which include Tyson Foods, Inc., the National Pork Producers Council Foundation, Dairy Management, Inc. (DMI), Fair Oaks Pig Adventure, Belstra Milling Company and the United Soybean Board.
“Working with the College Aggies Online competition is a natural fit for us,” says Jennifer Snyder, vice president of consumer confidence and the newsroom at DMI. “We share a common goal of helping reconnect consumers with those that produce food, including the nearly 47,000 dairy farm families across the country. Social media allows us all a great opportunity to engage in these important conversations.”
