The Stout Experience opportunity deadline is quickly approaching! DECEMBER 1 is the day for youth to have their applications submitted for two experiences in the name of former JMS / AJCA Employee Fred Stout.
Two awards will be offered: (1) a minimum 10-week summer marketing internship with Jersey Marketing Service, Reynoldsburg, Ohio, and (2) a minimum 10-week on-farm, customized internship in Jersey herd management.
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.
