WCMA seeking volunteers for World Champion Cheese Contest
Interested parties may sign up now online.
The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WMCA), organizers of the World Championship Cheese Contest, said it is seeking “B-Team” volunteers for the 2018 contest. The team will support contest judges as they evaluate more than 3,000 cheese, butter and yogurt entries March 6-8 in Madison, Wis.
“As our contest grows year after year, so too does our need for volunteer assistance,” said Kirsten Strohmenger Henning, WCMA’s events manager. “We’re grateful for the support of our hardworking ‘B-Team’ and hope you’ll consider joining the crew.”
WCMA said it is seeking volunteers for entry check-in at the WOW Logistics warehouse in Little Chute, Wis., on March 1 and March 2 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Volunteers are also needed during the judging portion of the contest at the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison on March 6, March 7 and March 8 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Another corps of volunteers prepare the Cheese Champion reception, also at the Monona Terrace Convention Center, on March 8.
All volunteers will receive a complimentary light breakfast and a buffet lunch, as well as an official “B-Team Volunteer” hat in appreciation of their efforts, WCMA said.
