Candidates sought for Stearns County dairy princess

This article submitted by Linda Stelling on 1/31/01.

The American Dairy Association of Stearns County is seeking candidates to participate in this year's dairy princess program.

Dairy princesses serve as goodwill ambassadors for the dairy industry by appearing at various promotional events and speaking to consumers and the media.

The princess contest will be held Saturday, March 3, at the Freeport Community Center in Freeport.

A candidate must be a high school graduate by July 1, 2001, and not yet 24 years old by July 1. She or her parents must be actively engaged in the production of milk for sale to a licensed plant during the current year. A candidate also qualifies if she or her parents are employed on a dairy farm in a dairy related capacity.

County dairy princesses are eligible to attend a statewide promotion training seminar to be held this spring in St. Cloud and may apply to be considered as a finalist for the Princess Kay of the Milky Way title. Twelve finalists will be selected to compete for the Princess Kay title in August.

At all levels of competition, contestants are judged on their communication skills, personality, enthusiasm for dairy promotion, and general knowledge of the dairy industry. For a complete rules brochure and application form, contact Corrine Lieser at 320-243-4324.
