June Dairy Month is quickly approaching, and there’s excitement in the air for the revival of the Dairy Princess Pageant. The last pageant was presented in 2013.
“We have had many inquiries about the pageant, and we are looking forward to bringing it back and adding a fresh look,” said 4-H Extension agent Shay Davis.
Two age groups will compete for the titles of Junior Dairy Princess, for fourth-graders; and Dairy Princess, for fifth- and sixth-graders. The pageant is open to all Warren County girls that have completed grades 4 - 6 as of Jan. 1, 2016.
The pageants will be held June 4 at 6 p.m. at the Three Star Mall. The events are open to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, age, sex, disability, religion or veteran status.
The event is conducted by UT-TSU Extension Warren County. Responsibilities of the Dairy Princess include but not limited to assisting the dairy chairperson Marynia Harris with various activities and events promoting the dairy industry.
A $25 entry fee is required to enter into the pageant. Contestants may be sponsored by a local business or parents may provide entry fee. Dress is pageant attire and can be either tea- or floor-length. The deadline for entry is Friday, May 6.
