My MaxYield Internship: Haley Banwart

Over the course of the paHaley Compressed 2st few weeks I have continued to have great experiences as a MaxYield Communications Intern. As a former 4-Her, I was pleased to represent MaxYield Cooperative in three different Iowa counties in support of the 4-H program. During the Palo Alto County Fair I was motivated to organize a MaxYield booth in the commercial building. Being in my home county, it was fun to see many familiar faces and share about my intern experience. I even received many compliments regarding the popular My Solutions magazine.

On the evening of July 22, I traveled to the Dickinson County Fair where I had the opportunity to practice my public speaking skills. As part of the awards celebration, I delivered a short speech on why MaxYield supports the 4-H program by donating $10.00 towards enrollment for each 4-H member. The following afternoon I visited the Kossuth County Extension and Outreach office where I conducted a check presentation on behalf of MaxYield as an enrollment donation.  I was delighted that I could represent MaxYield at each of these local 4-H events.

Another intern activity that I have been involved with lately includes working with freelance photographer, Greg Latza, in the field. We recently completed the summer photo shoots and I had a great deal of fun being involved in the action.  I have really enjoyed being a part of the stages of the magazine and calendar process and it has proven to be a significant learning tool for me. Because the 2014 antique tractor calendar is one of my main projects this summer, I am looking forward to seeing my work come to life.

There are many more projects and activities that I could share that have strengthened my knowledge as a student and my skills as a communicator. I have always believed that hands-on experience is the best way to learn. After having such valuable opportunities as a MaxYield intern I know that I have more than enough evidence to prove this belief.
