The 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be held in the spring in Las Vegas as part of The Week Vegas Goes Country. The week ramps up on Friday, April 1 with the ACM Party For a Cause® Festival — a huge three-day country music festival at Las Vegas Festival Grounds featuring all your favorite artists. The weekend festivities lead up to the 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards and All-Star Jam, the official ACM After Party. The chosen candidates will work closely with the Academy staff in the Brand Integration & Strategic Partnerships department and additionally complete general administrative duties.
Internships will start in early-November and run through late-April 2016 and will include a 10-day stay in Las Vegas with hotel, travel and meals provided.
