UW-Stevens Point professor Kristin Floress is seeking help from high school teachers and their students to complete a survey for her research in collaboration with Wisconsin State Parks. The letter below describes more about the research, which will help to design an outreach program to promote careers in the state parks.

Letter from Dr. Floress:
The Wisconsin State Park System is looking to hire quality individuals to work in the state parks. Over the years, as our society has moved into the Computer Age or Digital Age, there are greater career opportunities in all fields. There is an ongoing attempt to create awareness of the Wisconsin State Park system. There is also an attempt to try to understand what impacts the career motivations of high school students, and to discover the best ways to communicate with high school students. In order to meet these goals, Kristin Floress and her class at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point are conducting a study.
You are being asked to take this survey, which should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes. After the survey is over, you will not be asked to do anything else for this project.
The information will be used to design outreach programs to promote careers with Wisconsin State Parks. This study will also attempt to assist students in their future career paths, and will help us to understand how to better market careers with Wisconsin State Parks to students like you in the future.
Even if you have never visited a Wisconsin State Park or you have little interest in the outdoors, your input will be helpful to our understanding. In other words, we need to hear from you!
We are not asking your name or any other information that could identify you — your participation is completely anonymous. If you have any questions about this research, you can contact Kristin Floress at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715.346.4135. If you would like more information about this project, contact Carolyn Morgen at email@example.com
Thank you for your participation.
