COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — The 6th annual Aggie Corn Maze was held this weekend in College Station.

Instead of an entrance fee this year, organizers asked attendees to donate a canned item which will benefit the on-campus food pantry, the 12th Can.

Ariana Lazo, VP of the Texas A&M Agronomy Society and an Aggie Corn Maze event organizer, says this year, the group wanted to serve a fellow Aggie group instead of charging guests a fee.

Lazo says they were originally slated to open 2 weeks ago, but were awaiting approval from the University who she says were monitoring what events were taking place.

"The school has to limit what kind of events are going on, so we had to do a lot of preparation for COVID-19. We are requiring all of our participants to wear face-masks and we also had reservations this year, which was the first time we have ever done that. It was a little difficult, but we had a really good turn-out at the same time," Lazo added.

Organizers say they are working to hopefully host the corn maze for an additional weekend, but are unsure at this time. Lazo says any information about a potential second event will be posted on their Texas A&M Agronomy Facebook page.

Lazo says the Aggie Corn Maze raised around $10,000 last year. Those funds were used to cover the group's trips, professional meetings and out-of-state competitions.
