The Interns are All Here!

I'm the third intern, Kristine Milbrandt, and I finally started here at the Blue Ribbon Foundation yesterday. I go to Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, and we have kind of a different school year than other colleges, so I didn't get done until last Thursday, May 24. But now that I'm here, I'm very much looking forward to all the fun projects in front of me and the upcoming Iowa State Fair!

I'll be a senior at Wartburg this fall and I'll be graduating in December. I'm double majoring in Writing and Communication Arts with emphases in Public Relations. Writing has been a huge passion of mine since I was a kid. I've actually written two novels that I've been editing and hope to have published one day. I'm originally from Buffalo Center, Iowa--a small town in north central Iowa just 15 miles south of Minnesota. Growing up on a farm, I spent a lot of time working with my family and was really active in 4-H and FFA. So being here at the Fair this summer has me pretty excited! Agriculture is a big passion of mine, and to be around a place that is so filled with that, I know this summer is going to be great.

As the Special Events intern, some of the projects that I'll be working on include the 1854 Society events, Legislative Day, the Corndog Kickoff, and other Blue Ribbon Foundation events. I can't wait to dive into the projects that are awaiting and to really experience this place that I've loved since I was a kid this summer!

Until next time,
