Jersey Youth Academy applications due Nov. 30

Advertisement

Nov. 30 is the deadline to submit applications for the third Jersey Youth Academy, July 14 through 19, 2013, in Columbus, Ohio.

Established in 2008, Jersey Youth Academy achieves three broad objectives: first, for the participants to learn why and how the Jersey breed has grown and prospered, and what the future holds for the Jersey business; second, for them to meet leaders from the Jersey community and from across the support industry, and to gain their unique insights about the dairy business with a specific focus on the Jersey cow; and third, to learn about the range of career opportunities that involve the Jersey breed and Jersey products, and begin the journey that will take them to success working in the Jersey dairy business.

Youth who will be juniors or seniors in high school in the fall of 2013 and current college students who will have at least one year remaining to complete their degree are eligible to apply. Applicants must be U.S. residents.

The application is posted at http://academy.usjersey.com. A total of 36 individuals will be selected based on merit, motivation and preparation for the program as reflected in the written application and goal statement.

All program and transportation costs are paid by the Academy's 501(c)(3) educational foundation. Contributors to the foundation represent a broad spectrum of Jersey breeder and dairy industry support, with the largest contribution to date coming from the all-donation National Heifer Sale in June 2011.

Applications must be received in the office no later than 4:30 p.m. Eastern time on Nov. 30.

For more information, contact Dr. Cherie L. Bayer, director of Development for the American Jersey Cattle Association, at 614-322-4456 or academy@usjersey.com.
