AJCA seeking applicants for Fred Stout Experience Awards

Advertisement

Persons who have a strong desire to pursue a career in managing and/or marketing Registered Jersey cattle are encouraged to apply for the 2013 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.

Two awards will be offered: a minimum 10-week summer marketing internship with Jersey Marketing Service, Reynoldsburg, Ohio, and a minimum 10-week on-farm, structured internship in Jersey herd management. Financial support is provided by a permanent endowment created by friends and colleagues of Fred Stout.

Applicants must have completed their high school education. To apply, submit a one-page resume 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.

Two letters of support are required, one from an active breeder of Registered Jersey cattle, excluding immediate family members; and the other from a teacher, mentor or past employer. These must be mailed directly by the supporters to the AJCA office.

Applications and letters of support must be postmarked no later than Feb. 1, 2013 and addressed to Fred Stout Experience, American Jersey Cattle Association, 6486 E. Main Street, Reynoldsburg, OH 43068-2362. They may be sent by email to info@usjersey.com.

Previous recipients of the Fred Stout Experience Award are Tara Bohnert, Illinois (2003); Allison Waggoner, South Carolina (2004); Dan Bauer, Wisconsin (2005); Aaron Horst, Pennsylvania (2006); Jacob Pieper, Maryland (2007); Katie Albaugh, Maryland (2008); Brady Core, Kentucky (2009); Kim Wilson, Missouri and Ivy Roberts, Florida (2010); Joseph Fjarlie, Wisconsin and Amy Maxwell, Iowa (2011); and Robert McGarry, Vermont and Lyman Rudgers, New York (2012).

The American Jersey Cattle Association has made strategic investments in Jersey youth since 1958 when it created the National Heifer Sale to provide annual funding for educational programs and awards. Scholarships are paid from permanent endowments administered by the American Jersey Cattle Association. Contributions are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as 501(c)(3) tax deductible charitable gifts and may be made at any time during the year.
