Internship Program

“I’m excited to spend my summer with the Coalition team supporting and advocating for farmers. Growing up on a family farm instilled my passion and appreciation for agriculture and I look forward to connecting and working with fellow farm families." 
-Emma Wilson,
2017 Communications Intern 

The future of agriculture depends on the involvement of the next generation and the continued success of the livestock and poultry industries. The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers encourages students to take an active role in assisting the livestock industry, and to gain the knowledge needed to lead the agriculture industry.

This summer, CSIF welcomes Emma Wilson as the 2017 Communications Intern. 

Wilson will assist CSIF by creating content for the organization’s communications channels and coordinating farmer outreach activities. She will also assist with the day-to-day operations of the organization, including promoting and conducting open houses, workshops and other special events.

Wilson will return to Iowa State University in the fall as a senior double-majoring in agricultural communications and journalism. She is active in many student organizations including the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow Club and Iowa State Bacon Expo. The Guthrie County native grew up on a diversified grain and livestock farm near Guthrie Center.
