Next Saturday, after an ambitious interview process, the 75th Alice in Dairyland will be chosen.
Wisconsin’s next agricultural ambassador will be one of these six top candidates — Amber Cafferty, Amelia Hayden, Courtney Moser, Taylor Schaefer, Samantha Schuessler, and Charitee Seebecker.
Prior to being selected as top candidates, applicants completed an application and preliminary interview. After selected as top candidates in March, the group of six has been preparing for the three-day Alice in Dairyland Finals, scheduled for May 19-21 in Dane County. Preparation has included media interviews, ‘job shadowing’ 74th Alice in Dairyland Julia Nunes, an educational webinar series about DATCP and Wisconsin’s commodities, and presenting mock media campaigns.
The three-day finals process includes agribusiness tours, media interviews, an impromptu question and answer session, individual interviews, and candidate presentations.
The selection of the 75th Alice in Dairyland will be announced live during the program at the conclusion of the finals on May 21. The 75th Alice in Dairyland will begin her term on July 5.
“The Alice in Dairyland selection process takes your communication, interpersonal and public speaking skills to the next level,” says Nunes. “This process helps the top candidates refine their communications skills that will not only be pivotal in their journey to the 75th Alice in Dairyland Finals, but also in their future careers.”
