2015 ADADC DairyFAN Application

Submit by April 1, 2015

Are you social media savvy? Do you enjoy participating in conversations about where our food comes from and how it’s produced? If you answered yes to both of these, then the Dairy Food Advocacy Network (DairyFAN) is the place for you!

What is DairyFAN?
DairyFAN is a year-long social media advocacy program designed for college students and young professionals who are interested in engaging in the growing public dialogue about our farms and our food.

DairyFAN is a great resume builder that will help you hone important professional and personal skills. Participants in DairyFAN get guidance on how to beef up their social media accounts; opportunities to build their network within the agriculture industry; access to exclusive industry initiatives and events; and last but not least the opportunity to win prizes by participating in DairyFAN online initiatives.

DairyFAN is a program sponsored by the American Dairy Association & Dairy Council.

Who should apply?
Motivated, thoughtful and dedicated young leaders interested in making a difference in how we understand and discuss today’s farms and our food system. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 30; be a resident of New York, New Jersey or Pennsylvania; have the ability to travel independently; and have experience or background in agricultural or equivalent educational or professional experience in farming, food or associated fields.

  • Active Social Media Interaction: Engage a minimum of five times per week in social media discussions; actively seek to expand personal social networks; initiate and respond to key food topics and participate in special online DairyFAN events.
