Midwest Dairy seeks applicants for ND Ambassador Program

BISMARCK, N.D. — College students with an interest in dairy can now apply to be a dairy ambassador in North Dakota.

The Dairy Ambassador program provides students with leadership opportunities to connect with consumers and share their dairy story while networking with their peers and industry professionals. To be considered, applicants must be enrolled in a post-secondary school, communicate effectively through writing and speaking and possess a passion for dairy.

Applicants do not have to be majoring in agriculture. Ambassadors are expected to serve a one-year term, starting Jan. 1, 2019, and ending Dec. 31, 2019.

Ambassadors participate in a variety of activities which may include interaction with consumers at county and state fairs, school presentations and attendance at dairy industry meetings. Each ambassador will receive a $1,000 scholarship at the end of their term.

The Dairy Ambassador program is a coordinated effort between Midwest Dairy and various colleges and state extension programs within the eight states where programs are available. The program began in Nebraska five years ago and has since grown to include multiple states. It is effective in shaping future dairy champions to promote the dairy community and supports Midwest Dairy’s mission to give consumers an excellent dairy experience. Students can apply at www.Midwestdairy.com/for-farmers/ambassadors. Applications are due Dec. 1, 2018. Selected ambassadors will be notified before Jan. 1, 2019.
