The Kentucky Beef Network is pleased to announce an educational opportunity for (5) Kentucky high school students. This program is a joint venture with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and their Youth Beef Leadership Symposium. The dates for this program are November 20-22, 2015 and will be held at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln campus.
We are now accepting applications for this program. Students must be high school juniors or seniors. They should have a desire for continuing their education and a strong interest to learn more about the beef cattle industry.
Registration fee, air transportation, meals and lodging costs will be funded through the Kentucky Beef Network grant from the Kentucky Agriculture Development Fund. Adult chaperone(s) will be traveling with the students.
Applications must be postmarked by September 1, 2015. Finalists will be notified to participate in a personal interview. Interviews will take place at the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association office in Lexington.
