The search is on for the next contributing author to The Cattleman’s Advocate Youth Column!

Last month, I shared the ways this experience has been beneficial for me, and what it has to offer for the next writer. With all that being said, it is now time to find the right candidate!

Below is some information about the position. Please share this opportunity with others!

The responsibilities of this position include writing the monthly youth column. Each article should be between 600 and 1200 words, include images and meet the monthly deadline. Students will gain valuable skills and experience through this position. The Cattleman’s Advocate is an excellent opportunity to advance students towards other opportunities including collegiate and career success. This position is new, and can be adapted to fit the right candidate.
