THE DEADLINE FOR THE 2019 FRED STOUT EXPERIENCE AWARDS – **DECEMBER 1, 2018**
Jersey Marketing Service has had some great young people experience the cattle marketing side of the Jersey business and we look forward to working with the 2019 Fred Stout Experience participant!
Details on applications, other supporting letters and important information can be found HERE.
A Fred Stout Roundtable PDF was published in the November 2018 Jersey Journal, with past Fred Stout Experience participants describing what the internship was like for them, both with JMS and on the farm. Take a moment to see what the internship meant to these young leaders in the Jersey and Dairy Industries!
(Excerpt From the AJCA Website) Reynoldsburg, Ohio—Persons who have a strong desire to pursue a career in managing and/or marketing Registered Jersey™ cattle are encouraged to apply for the 2019 Fred Stout Experience awards.
The awards are presented annually in memory of Fred J. Stout Sr., Mt. Carmel, Ill., a lifelong Jersey breeder and member of the Jersey Marketing Service staff from 1978 to 1997 who believed that the best learning experiences happen in the everyday world.
Awards will be made for two paid internships, one with Jersey Marketing Service, Reynoldsburg, Ohio, and the other an on-farm, customized experience on a Jersey dairy operation. The awards, provided by a permanent endowment created by friends and colleagues of Fred Stout, will pay for housing, travel and related activities required by the cooperating employer up to the maximum amount of the scholarship award.
Applicants must have completed their high school education. To apply, submit a one-page résumé listing previous work experience, skills and other qualifications, plus a separate cover letter stating your ambitions, goals and career aspirations, including plans for achieving them. The letter must also explain how and why the Fred Stout Experience will be of benefit in achieving future goals. A summary of involvement with and interest in Registered Jersey™ cattle is required. Specify which experience (marketing internship, on-farm internship) is preferred, or indicate if you are interested in both opportunities.
