Virtual Training • Undergraduates, Graduate Students and Collegiate Clubs
CAO is a nine-week training for undergraduates, graduate students and collegiate clubs to become confident and effective communicators for agriculture. Each week, individuals post on social media or complete a challenge to receive points while industry and farmer mentors provide feedback and advice to help students improve their advocacy skills. Challenges include writing a blog post, designing an infographic, writing a letter to the editor, hosting a Facebook live video and more. Educational webinars are also provided during the scholarship competition. At the end of the competition, the students with the most points win scholarships!
