A Morris woman is among those chosen as a finalist to be Princess Kay of the Milky Way at the Dairy Promotion and Leadership Event held May 17-19 at the Courtyard by Marriott in St. Cloud.
Elizabeth Golombiecki, Morris, daughter of Julie Golombiecki and the late Ron Golombiecki, will represent Stevens County at the 2019 Minnesota State Fair.
Golombiecki and the other nine finalists each had to submit an application, participate in a personal interview, prepare and deliver a speech, and participate in a mock media interview. From there, 10 finalists were named to go on to compete for the title of Minnesota’s 66th Princess Kay of the Milky Way.
These 10 young women will have their likeness carved in blocks of butter during the 2019 Minnesota State Fair. Princess Kay and county dairy princesses make appearances to help explain dairy farm families’ commitment to taking care of their animals and resources while providing nutrient-rich dairy products.
The St. Cloud conference offered the princesses a chance to learn about themselves and how to use their skills to promote dairy. They also learned how to be better advocates for the dairy community and networked with industry leaders and peers.
