Applicants are required to submit a resume, cover letter, and reference page to be considered for any internship with National Western Stock Show.

To apply, click the link under the description of the placement you are most interested in. As a part of your application, you will also be asked to identify your second and third choices for placement - please be sure to select different areas!

Applications will be accepted August 21 - October 1, 2023.  You will be contacted by a member of our team to schedule an in-person or virtual interview by October 21, 2023. Students selected for an internship will be notified by November 11, 2023. If selected, contact your academic advisor or department internship coordinator to register for internship credits. We realize that the Stock Show may overlap with the first week of spring classes; while professors are normally willing to work with you during this time, if selected as an intern, it is your responsibility to contact professors in advance and arrange any necessary make-up work before you leave for the Stock Show.

Wage & Salary Info

While this is an unpaid internship, NWSS will provide all interns with lodging, two meals per day, and select rodeo tickets. NWSS interns will be invited to special events throughout Stock Show and will have the opportunity to network with prominent business owners and leaders in the Colorado and Wyoming agriculture industry.  Interns are responsible for their own transportation.
