Big Horn Basin Students Invited to Worland Ag Career Fair

February 8, 2017

Big Horn Basin students interested in agricultural careers have an opportunity to question professionals during the University of Wyoming’s Ag Career Extravaganza Tuesday, Feb. 14, in Worland.

The 5:30-7:30 p.m. event in the Worland Community Center is set specifically during the annual two-day WESTI Ag Days, which draws agricultural experts in many professions to Worland. WESTI Ag Days is Feb. 14-15.

“This is an opportunity for youths to interact with ag professionals to learn the ins and outs of what they do in their careers,” says Amber Armajo, UW Extension 4-H educator in Washakie County, who helped plan the event with educator Caitlin Youngquist.

RSVPs are requested for the free dinner by calling (307) 347-3431.

Students from high schools in Big Horn, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie counties are invited, Armajo says.

Recruiters from UW and community colleges also are expected.

“There are many career opportunities in ag-related fields youths may not be aware of, especially if they were not raised on a farm or ranch,” Youngquist says. “Youths and parents will be able to visit with professionals and college recruiters, ask questions and learn about career options.”

Expected to attend are people in professions such as animal nutrition, agricultural economics, agricultural communications, irrigation and implement companies, sales, banking, seed companies, plant science, research, agronomy and others.

“We highly encourage youths who do not have an ag background to attend,” Youngquist says.

For more information, call Armajo or Youngquist at (307) 347-3431.
