The Animal Agriculture Alliance has announced the results of its second College Aggies Online scholarship competition. The nationwide program was developed in partnership with American National CattleWomen, Inc. to help college students utilize social media tools to share agriculture’s story.
Members of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College’s Cattlemen’s Club in Georgia won top honors and will receive a 750-dollars scholarship and a trip to Washington, D.C. for one representative to attend the Alliance’s Stakeholders Summit in April. Casper College’s Ag Club in Wyoming came in second place and will receive 300-dollars.
The individual high scorer is Jessie McClellan of the Casper College Ag Club. She will receive a 250-dollar scholarship. Jacob Nyguis of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College came in second place and will be awarded 100-dollars.
Over the past seven months, 600 college students from more than 50 universities earned points by posting blogs, photos and videos related to agriculture and by participating in “Aggie Homework” agriculture advocacy challenges via twitter, Facebook and e-mail.
