Involvement Pays

“The exposure to key events in the industry is essential in developing skills that will prepare graduates for a career in the outdoor realm. In addition, having these experiences will help college-aged students to find their path and expand their network. OJEFA does an excellent job facilitating this through the Lindsay Sale-Tinney Award Scholarship!”
