We told you Wednesday that Annika Donlick from Cortland County was selected as a second Associate Ambassador for New York State Dairy.
Donlick won a $500 scholarship and will advocate for dairy farmers at events educating about the benefits of milk and dairy, how cows and land are cared for and the importance of dairy to the state economy.
By the way, it’s no longer just Dairy Princesses promoting milk products…beginning this year, young men can compete for these Dairy Ambassador positions.
The New York State Dairy Ambassador Program aims to build critical professional skills and confidence of young individuals who are passionate about the dairy industry.
The program changes will continue to roll out this spring, when young men will be able to compete for county Dairy Ambassador positions and ultimately for the state title. The core components of the program and the competition remain the same.
