The Dairy Princess contest is open to any high school girl age 16 to 20 who currently lives or works on an operating dairy farm in Delaware County.
The Little Mr. Herdsman and Little Miss Squirt contests are open to any boy or girl enrolled in kindergarten through second grade. The child’s parents must currently live or work for an operating dairy farm in Delaware County.
