Welcome to College Aggies

College Aggies Online (CAO) is an initiative of the Alliance that connects college students from across the country who are interested in promoting agriculture. Participants receive training and instructions from industry experts and engage on social media by posting information about current and emerging issues facing farmers and ranchers and telling personal stories. CAO is about developing life-long advocates for agriculture!

About College Aggies

The Animal Agriculture Alliance's College Aggies Online (CAO) Scholarship program is a nationwide initiative aimed at helping college students and collegiate agriculture clubs utilize social media and advocacy to share agriculture's story. The competition is held every fall, running approximately 9 weeks between September and November and is open to all college students with an interest in agriculture. Last year, 344 participants created 1,880 social media posts which earned 2.3 million impressions and 35 clubs reached 15,000 people with their activities!

The program includes an individual divison and a club division. Individuals will have weekly challenges to enhance their advocating skills while the clubs will host events on their campus to engage with peers about agriculture.
