NFL Honors Student Intern & Volunteer Opportunities

The 7th annual NFL Honors is being hosted at Northrop on the University of Minnesota Campus and will be televised on NBC Saturday, February 3 at 8:00 pm CST.

It is a large production that takes place over a full week and the NFL and Northrop are excited to invite U of M students to apply for internships where they will be able to experience the multi-faceted production process from the inside.
