Sponsorship Guidelines (2/3/2014)

Extension has a long history of working with sponsors to enhance Extension’s programming efforts.  How does Extension appropriately and consistently acknowledge sponsors of Extension programs and materials?  At the same time, how do we reinforce the brand of the NDSU Extension Service as the credible source of unbiased, research-based information? 

A Sponsorship Acknowledgement Task Force was formed to establish guidelines for the NDSU Extension Service. The members of the task force were Charlie Stoltenow, chair; Carl Dahlen; Dave Franzen; Julie Garden-Robinson; Jason Goltz; Marie Hvidsten; Becky Koch; Lesley Lubenow; Sam Markell and Rachelle Vettern.  I want to thank them for creating a concise document that covers a broad range of sponsorship opportunities including field signs, numbered publications, videos, meetings and events, websites, promotional materials and clothing. 

The guidelines are on our policies/guidelines website and under Ag Comm educational materials. Also, the task force created a Sponsored Educational Materials Agreement template.  This should be used any time an NDSU Extension numbered publication, video or similar resource is produced using sponsor support.
