NDSU Student Named Princess Kay of the Milky Way

Posted: Updated:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A 20-year-old college student from northwestern Minnesota has been crowned the 60th Princess Kay of the Milky Way at the Minnesota State Fair, which begins a 12-day run today.

Polk County representative MarJenna McWilliam of Winger was crowned Wednesday night.  She'll serve as the official goodwill ambassador for nearly 4,000 Minnesota dairy farmers for the next year. McWilliam attends NDSU in Fargo, where she majors in English education.

County dairy princesses from across Minnesota competed for the Princess Kay title. Rachael Rostad of Wanamingo, representing Goodhue County, and Katie Schmitt of Rice, representing Benton County, were runners-up. 

McWilliam's first official duty as Princess Kay will be to sit in a rotating cooler in the Dairy Building on opening day of the Minnesota State Fair to have her likeness sculpted in a 90-pound block of butter.
