The Midwest Dairy Association North Dakota Division is seeking candidates to participate in this year’s North Dakota Dairy Princess contest on June 27-28 in Bismarck.

The coronation will take place during the North Dakota’s Division Board of Directors meeting at the Radisson in Bismarck. The entry deadline is Wednesday, June 15.

The North Dakota Dairy Princess serves as the official goodwill ambassador for the state’s dairy industry, helping communicate with people about dairy farmers’ stewardship for animals and natural resources, the safety and wholesomeness of dairy products, and the economic importance of dairy to North Dakota’s economy.

Eligible candidates include young women from 18 to 23 years old with a strong interest in and affiliation with the dairy industry. Candidates must be a high school graduate and unmarried. Selection is based on communication skills, personality, general knowledge of the dairy industry and enthusiasm for dairy promotion.

Candidates may also apply for one $500 scholarship regardless of who wins the crown, provided by Midwest Dairy Association’s North Dakota Division.

For complete rules and an application form, contact Char Heer, Midwest Dairy Association, at (701) 782-4154 or email cheer@midwestdairy.com. Potential candidates may also visit MidwestDairy.com/ForFarmers/DairyPrincessContests for more information.
