Student teams are forming NOW for the Ag Springboard student business pitch contest that teaches teams of students how to pitch their solutions for problems in the agricultural sciences.

Ag sciences students learn a lot about problems -- and we bet you have great solutions, too.

The Ag Springboard student pitch contest teaches student teams how to pitch their ideas for new business or non-profit solutions.

No idea? No problem. Many teams need people to help, and it's still great fun.

Pitching means telling a story about an idea, why it's needed, and how it will work. No matter your future, pitching is a GREAT, and valuable lifeskill.

Oh -- and the top team wins $7,500 to help Make It Happen!
