June is “Dairy Month” and also the traditional month for the Washington State Dairy Ambassador Contest. This program provides a tremendous professional and educational opportunity for young women in Washington State. The young women chosen to serve as Washington’s Ambassadors for Milk receive a generous college scholarship, internships, and extensive communications training.
“It will soon be time to say good bye and thank you to our 2016- 2017 State Dairy Ambassador Alicia Smaciarz (Raymond) and State Alternates Jana Plagerman (Lynden) and Tiana Peterson (Graham). They have done a fantastic job representing the Dairy Farmers of Washington this past year and I’m sure they will continue to be lifelong advocates of our industry. We wish them well as they move on to the next chapter in their lives….” commented Tammi Schoenbachler, State Ambassador Advisor.
