Billings, Mont.–The NILE has a small full-time staff but an enormous part-time and volunteer base that is essential to the operation of this huge, annual agriculture celebration. Since 2012 the NILE brings on interns to help stock show and rodeo run smoothly.
This year there was the most amount of intern applications since the program started. It was a tough decision process picking the 2016 interns because there were so many good ones to choose from.
These college students bring a variety of personal experience and specialties to help make the NILE the exceptional event that it is. They come from six different universities and from near and far states.
“We're excited to bring on this year's interns because they always bring energy, excitement, and enthusiasm to the organization,” says program administrator Shelby Shaw.
The purpose of the internship program is to provide an outstanding opportunity to gain training and work experience in the livestock and equine industries as well as events based business through the NILE Stock Show and Rodeo.
