Sponsorship of the North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge encourages enhanced training and motivation of college-level dairy students, preparing them for successful careers throughout the industry. Sponsors are the key to maintaining this worthwhile program.

Platinum and Gold level sponsors are provided with booth space at the recruitment trade show and may participate in reception events with students. Platinum sponsors are invited to provide judges for the competition and Foundation Platinum sponsors receive additional recognition.

All sponsors are recognized in NAIDC publicity, invited to view team presentations during the competition, attend the awards banquet and receive contact information for all participating students. Sponsorships begin at $500 for Bronze, $1,000 for Silver, $2,500 for Gold, and $5,000 for Platinum. Multi-star Platinum designations are awarded for those companies who sponsor at levels above $5000. NAIDC has Sponsorship opportunities for dairy farms as well: Diamond Dairy for $1000 and Emerald Dairy for $500. To become a sponsor, contact any member of the NAIDC Board of Directors.

WDE Management Inc. manages all NAIDC funds. NAIDC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
