MONTROSE, Pa. — Susquehanna County is seeking Dairy Princess candidates. Single young ladies between the ages of 16-24 with an interest in the dairy industry may want to consider devoting time to promote the dairy industry here in Susquehanna County.
A County Princess serves for one year. Not old enough to be a Princess? The Dairy Maid and Dairy Ambassador program functions within the County to assist the Dairy Princess in carrying out her duties and at times plan and carry out dairy promotions on their own.
The qualifications as a Dairy Princess candidate must include at least one of the following; a daughter, granddaughter, niece or sister of a dairy farmer, an employee of a dairy farm or dairy related business, be a 4-H member and own or lease one or more dairy animals as a 4-H project or have served one year or more years as a Dairy Maid or Dairy Ambassador. A Princess candidate must be at least 16 years old by June 1 and not more than 24 years old as of June 1 of the current year.
A Princess candidate, Dairy Maid or Dairy Ambassador must have a sincere desire to promote dairy products, be a milk drinker and include other dairy products in their personal diet. The Susquehanna County dairy court works hard spreading the message about the importance of consuming “three every day” of dairy — milk, cheese or yogurt.
Girls with interest in being a Dairy Princess candidate or taking part in the program as a Dairy Ambassador or Dairy Maid or have questions about the program please contact Evie Goff at 570-278-1212 or email email@example.com by the April 23 deadline.
Dairy Princess Michayla Stahl will be handing her reign to a new County Princess at the 2018 Dairy Princess Pageant being held on May 25 at 7:30 p.m. at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, Parish Hall on Church Street in Montrose. The public is invited to attend.
