High school students will have a chance to learn about the beef industry during a symposium at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The Nebraska Youth Beef Leadership Symposium is offering two sessions in November. The sessions are designed to teach students about meat science, quality assurance, marketing and other careers in the industry.
The first session geared toward freshman and sophomores will take place Nov. 2-3. The session for juniors and seniors is set for Nov. 3-5, and will give students the chance to work with a professional chef.
Six students will each receive $500 from the university's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
