“The events of the past several months have forced almost everything to be virtual and demonstrated the increasing need to be proficient in virtual event and interview formats,” says Kelli Dunklee, Holstein Association USA Youth Specialist. “We thought this would be a great opportunity to equip our youth members with experience and skills they can put to work right away.”
