Compete in Ag Springboard 2019 to get a head start on your career! Ag Springboard Open Houses September 18, October 22, and November 13.

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!)

  • Tuesday, September 18, 6-7:30 pm
  • Monday, October 22, 5-6:30 pm
