Dairy princess candidates sought

It's that time of year again where we are looking for girls to represent the hard- working farmers as Wadena County Dairy Princesses and ambassadors. Contestants for Senior Dairy Princess must be between 18-24 years old with a strong knowledge of the dairy industry and leadership qualities. Junior ambassador contestants must be between 14-16 years old with dairy knowledge, leadership potential, and a willingness to learn. Both will serve as goodwill ambassadors of the dairy industry throughout the county for the next year, and the senior candidates will have the opportunity to compete at the state level as well in May.

An informational meeting will be held at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 15, at the Pizza Ranch in Wadena. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend. For more information, contact Becky Richter at (218) 371-6990.
