ISU Extension and Outreach welcomes the 2016 Rising Star Interns!
Another summer brings another year of the Rising Star Internship program. This summer we welcome 5 students from Iowa State University. The Rising Star Internship program enables students to help their community while gaining real world experience and exposes them to careers in Extension and Outreach work. This summer, the Rising Star interns will be focusing on regional food systems as well as an individual project.

The Rising Star Interns will be holding food demos throughout the area this summer. Catch them at any of these locations to taste test a fresh local food dish and get the recipe!
