More than 500 students will explore future career options at Wednesday’s annual eighth grade career fair at Riverside Arena.

Students from Freeborn and Mower County will choose four of 26 represented career areas to explore. Career areas range from accounting, cosmetology, law enforcement and news media to mechanics, performing arts, teaching and wildlife management.

Career representatives from the area will speak to students about job demands and experiences. Students will be asked to research each of their four chosen career areas.


The fair is being funded by Alltel Wireless, Austin Area Chamber of Commerce, Freeborn-Mower Cooperative Services and Austin Public Schools.
