Finalists Named for 67th Princess Kay of the Milky Way
Minnesota Ag Connection - 05/18/2020

Ten dairy princesses from across Minnesota have been named finalists for the 67th Princess Kay of the Milky Way, after participating in virtual judging sessions held May 15-16. The virtual judging took the place of the Dairy Promotion and Leadership event that is typically held in person but was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To compete to be a finalist for Princess Kay of the Milky Way, each princess submitted an application, participated in a personal interview, prepared and delivered a speech, and participated in a mock media interview, all of which took place virtually using the online Zoom platform. After these events, 10 finalists were selected to compete for the title of Minnesota's 67th Princess Kay of the Milky Way, who will be crowned in August.

The finalists include:

** Emily Benrud, 20, of Goodhue, representing Goodhue County

** Brenna Connelly, 19, of Byron, representing Olmsted County

** Mackenzie Craig, 19, of Alexadria, representing Douglas County

** Emma Friauf, 19, of Glencoe, representing McLeod County

** Taylor Jerde, 20, of Northfield, representing Dakota County

** Katherine Maus, 18, of Freeport, representing Stearns Country

** Maggie Meyer, 20, of Grove City, representing Meeker County

** Maggie Molitor, 17, of Rockville, representing Stearns County

** Valerie Sauder, 20, of Pine Island, representing Dodge County

** Rebeckah Schroeder, 20, of Caledonia, representing Houston County

Princess Kay candidates are judged on their general knowledge of the dairy industry, communication skills and enthusiasm for promoting dairy. Midwest Dairy sponsors the Princess Kay of the Milky Way program, which is funded by dairy farmers through their promotion checkoff.
