We love engaging with students and inspiring them to consider a career for Ag, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR). Additionally, we have the network with Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and industry to help make connections and referrals. Two common ways we connect with students include:
- Classroom Visits - Teachers, please reach out to us and let us know what you are looking for. We have standard presentations that we can deliver, which include interacting with students. If you are looking for something more specific, let us know and we'll do the best we can to accomomate your needs.
- Career Fairs - Please let us know when your school is having a career fair and we'd love to be there with an interactive exhibit to represent careers in AFNR as well as Minnesota State Colleges that have AFNR programs. Also, depending on space and time of year along with the nature of the event, we also enjoy bringing our John Deere Combine Simulator as that is always a hit and it connects people to agriculture and gives people a chance to experience driving a combine. Images of the trailer are shown below.
