Blue Ribbon Internships

Now that the Fair is all wrapped up, it’s pretty quiet around here. Partly because it just not as busy and partly because we lose half of our staff…aka our much appreciated summer interns. Just when they get the hang of the everyday craziness of the Fair, they leave us to finish their senior year, only hours later.

For those of you who follow our blog, you can vouch for how great our interns were this year. They each posted once a week to keep you up to date on Foundation activities, and quite frankly its making my job difficult to keep up on my postings now that they’re gone. A special thank you to our three amazing interns Drew, Kristen and Trista for their hard work this summer!

If you know of any hard-working, motivated college students in their junior year, who love the Fair, be sure to send them our way! We are looking for spring and summer interns to help us plan for the 2012 Fair. A full description of the available positions can be found here. The deadline is December 31, 2011.

As a previous Foundation intern myself, I can attest to the quality of the internships we offer. Interns will have a one of a kind experience and learn a lot of skills along the way. If you have any questions feel free to send me an email.
