The Volunteers Behind the Crown

Behind every successful promotion team, there is a county promotion committee. The volunteer dairy princess committee is essential to the success of the grassroots dairy promotion program. They plan promotions, drive county royalty from event to event, provide support and assist young women in sharing the dairy story.

Since 2012, PDPPS has recognized outstanding county dairy princess committee members who have reached at least 15 years of service. These individuals have spent countless hours in dairy promotion. Thank you for making a difference in young lives all while promoting the dairy industry and its foods!

Congratulations to the following volunteers for their dedicated service.
