WISC-TV (channel 3) in Madison has kicked off a “Salute to Wisconsin Dairy Professionals” project recognizing dairy professionals in Southern Wisconsin for the positive contributions they make to the dairy industry and local communities.
Through May 16, WISC-TV and the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, the project’s sponsor, invite the public to nominate dairy-related professionals who have distinguished themselves for positive contributions to the industry and its critical role in Wisconsin’s economy.
Nominees must play an active role in the dairy industry, such as dairy farmer/family, cheesemaker, educator, veterinarian, government liaison, administrator or policy maker, etc., and be an adult Wisconsin resident residing in Grant, Iowa or Lafayette counties (counties in the WISC-TV’s viewing area).
Online nominations can be made at www.DairyDoingMore.org (look for the “Nominate a Dairy Professional” link) and www.Channel3000.com under the “Contests” section. Simply complete the nomination form along with an explanation of why the nominee deserves to be considered for a “Salute to Wisconsin Dairy Professionals” award. Only one entry per person will be accepted, and entrants may nominate themselves.
A panel of experts will judge the entries, and the top eight will be selected and contacted from May 17 to May 22. One winner per week will then be announced throughout June and July, posted on www.Channel3000.com and www.DairyDoingMore.org plus broadcast on WISC-TV and TVW14.
