Professional Agriculture Student (PAS) organization is a gathering of nearly 600 career-ready professional agricultural students, their collegiate advisors, and industry representatives from across the nation. It is a one-of-a-kind collegiate-level competition-style learning model that gives students the practical and hands-on development opportunities essential for career success. Students compete at the local, state, and national levels and are guided by faculty advisors to develop the technical, professional, and soft skills required for career success within the agriculture industry.
