About the Dairy Princess Program

The Washington County Dairy Princess Program is designed to help bridge the gap between farmers and consumers through a number of activities that the Dairy Princess takes part in.

The dairy princesses who serve in the Washington County Dairy Princess Program act as goodwill ambassadors for the dairy industry, representing the county’s dairy farmers. They make public appearances across the region to educate people about the care and dedication dairy farmers take in producing wholesome, nutritious dairy foods for all to enjoy. The crown and banner worn by a dairy princess make it easy for the public to identify who she is and what she represents.

The Dairy Princess, in conjunction with her court and county committee, promotes the ADADC (American Dairy Association and Dairy Council) programs during her reigning year.

You will see the Dairy Princess, First Alternate, and Dairy Ambassadors visiting local schools and libraries, in parades, at the county fair, at farmer meetings, and at events throughout the area.

The Dairy Princess and her court are required to sign up for and participate in the FUEL UP to PLAY 60.  Fuel Up to Play 60 s an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council (NDC), American Dairy Association and Dairy Council (ADADC), and National Football League, in collaboration with United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
