Go Ag! is a regional campaign to educate our youth about the opportunities in agriculture, to raise awareness regarding the diversity within those opportunities and to increase enrollment in agriculture certificate and degree programs.
Opening a student’s eyes to the world of agriculture can lead to a lifelong appreciation for the food and fiber that agriculture produces. Teachers are invaluable in this regard. Here teachers can find resources for students interested in ag careers, internship opportunities, and classroom resources including lesson plans, grant opportunities, and more.
