Every spring, a talented group of individuals works through a very long and public job interview process. Together they tour agribusinesses, work with media professionals, give presentations and answer impromptu questions in front of an audience. They learn about and talk about Wisconsin’s agriculture industry.
At the conclusion of this in-depth process, one of these individuals is selected as the next Alice in Dairyland.
Each year, a different Wisconsin county hosts the Alice in Dairyland interview activities, with Adams County serving as the host this year. The 71st Alice in Dairyland will be selected at the conclusion of the three-day Finals Program, May 17-19. The public is welcome to attend two events during the finals in Adams County:
• Candidate Discussion Panel, May 18, Fawn Creek Winery at 3619 13th Ave., Wisconsin Dells; 5 p.m. social hour, 6 p.m. dinner, 7 p.m. discussion panel. Join the 71st Alice in Dairyland candidates as they take part in a discussion panel addressing agriculture topics.
