This news release on the Animal Agriculture Alliance website says ACF will send the winners of the College Aggies Online (CAO) program all expenses paid to the event on January 17 & 18, 2015, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In addition to monetary scholarships in the amount of $5,000.00 and $2,500, respectively, the top two individual winners will each be rewarded will an all expenses paid trip to attend the Collegiate Congress.
The ACF’s 2015 Collegiate Congress is the first of its kind, and aims to challenge passionate, agriculture college-students from across the U.S. to expand their social media experiences and shorten the bridge between consumers and their food. The event will include sessions on what consumers see and hear, how social media can be improved to tell a story when you are living on campus and away from the farm, how to use blogging, and what it means to make a consumer connection, both on and offline. Attendees can expect a strong focus on networking with other students and exchanging ideas on how to connect with fellow non-agriculture students on their campuses.
“We are excited to be teaming with the College Aggies Online program on the 2015 National Collegiate Congress. As we build a solid foundation for our youngest agvocates, developing alliances with other like-minded programs is essential,” stated AgChat Foundation’s Executive Director Jenny Schweigert. “This year’s College Aggies Online program includes some of the best of the best of college advocates. We are delighted to further their experiences by hosting the top two individual winners of the College Aggies Online competition.”
