K-State Animal Sciences Leadership Academy planned for June


Kansas State University will host the fifth annual K-State Animal Sciences Leadership Academy June 5 to 8 for young livestock industry leaders in Kansas.

The program, hosted by the Department of Animal Sciences and Industry, focuses on increasing participants' knowledge of the Kansas livestock industry, as well as enhancing leadership skills.

Twenty high school students will be selected to participate, based on educational, community and agricultural involvement. Students will stay in campus housing and receive training in Weber Hall as well as tour the university's animal science facilities and Kansas livestock businesses.

Students must apply by March 15. Candidates have to be enrolled in high school and able to participate in the entire academy.

The academy's sponsor is the Livestock and Meat Industry Council, a non-profit organization focused on education and research to improve global competitiveness and efficiency of animal and food production.

More information, including registration forms, is available on the K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry website at http://www.asi.ksu.edu on the Research and Extension link, select Youth Programs (scroll to 2013 K-State Animal Sciences Leadership Academy).
