Fels to Serve as Wisconsin's First Maple Marketing Intern
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/20/2017
The Wisconsin Maple Syrup Producers Association has selected a Denmark teen to serve as its first-ever Maple Marketing Intern. Allie Fels will spend the next year promoting the state's maple syrup industry.
A 2017 graduate of Denmark High School, Fels is currently studying to become a nurse at Northwest Technical College in Green Bay. She has been involved with making maple syrup all of her life and wants to play a role in keeping the family tradition alive.
The new internship position replaces the former Wisconsin Maple Queen program, which has been dropped this year. The internship is a 32 to 40 hour commitment throughout the year and includes traveling to open houses, the first official tree tapping,
WMSPA fall tour, and the Wisconsin State Fair.
Allie was chosen by a committee after conducting interviews and submitting an essay and resume.
