Alice In Dairyland Finalists To Be Introduced Friday

(Madison) Finalists for the 75th Alice in Dairyland will be introduced this Friday. Applicants from all over Wisconsin will meet the media and begin their 10-week campaign of “becoming Alice” – one of the most recognizable spokespersons of Wisconsin agriculture.

“Alice in Dairyland” is a full-time public relations professional who works for the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Her role is to meet with statewide media, youth organizations, civic groups, and a wide array of local events to facilitate a deeper understanding of the state’s agricultural industries.

Julia Nunes, who has served as Alice for the past two years because of the pandemic, says she has thoroughly enjoyed her tenure and traveled more than 45,000 miles throughout Wisconsin. She adds that she is looking forward to meeting the candidates and working with them through this first step towards the finals in May.

Dane County will host the 75th Alice in Dairyland event. The finals will be at the Monona Terrace on May 21st.

The Dodge County-area’s most recent connection to Alice in Dairyland was in 2010. Christine Lindner of Fall River, who grew up on her family’s farm just outside of Beaver Dam, was the state’s 63rd Alice.
