Counties Sought to Host 2019 Alice in Dairyland Finals
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/05/2017
State coordinators who work with the Alice in Dairyland program in Wisconsin are in the process of accepting bids from a county or counties to host the program's finals weekend in 2019. Local economic development organizations and agricultural promotion organizations are encouraged to consider this opportunity to welcome visitors and media professionals from around the state.
Each year, a different county hosts the Alice in Dairyland selection festivities. The process includes a three-day finals event, as well as a two-day briefing tour several weeks before finals.
Alice in Dairyland is a communications professional employed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture. After a weeks-long public job interview involving as many as six finalists, each Alice works for one year to educate the public about Wisconsin agriculture.
Next year's selection of the 71st Alice in Dairyland will be May 17-19, 2018 in Adams County. For more details about the process, call the DATCP at 608-224-5115. Proposals are due by August 14.
