You've seen TV's Shark Tank?

Ag Springboard is a lot like that -- except for students in the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Like the TV show, contestants learn a lot about how to succeed in any career -- just by competing.

Winning Ag Springboard gives the top team $7,500 to pursue the new business concept it pitched to judges. The second-place team wins $2,500.

(No small potatoes!)
