2012 District #3 Dairy Princess Contest---Contest & Highlights

The Onstage Contest
The contestants, judges & assorted committee members arrive early on the day of the contest.
The contestants are interviewed individually by the panel of 3 judges, they rehearse their prepared question and onstage appearance, followed by lunch with the judges & Co-Chair Representatives.  Then there is more rehearsal, primping and excitement builds.  Following the Cheese Social, the girls are each interviewed before the audience & judges by Emcee Ralph Sartori.

While the girls are occupied with their on and off stage interviews, the North Bay Dairy Women have been busy making the hall into a beautiful setting.  This year's theme is "Land of Milk & Honey" and the decorations are yellow and black, bees & cows, flowers & milk cans.  The room always looks lovely for the nighttime event.
Thank you goes to all those talented ladies (and a few men helpers)!!
