Abigail Zurcher was crowned as the 2018-2019 Washington State Dairy Ambassador. Abigail was one of five finalists at the 63rd Annual Washington State Dairy Ambassador Coronation at the Bellevue High School Performing Arts Center in Bellevue, WA.
Rebecca Ford and Jacoba (Cobi) VanSlageren were selected as equal Alternate State Dairy Ambassadors.
“I am so excited to be representing the dairy farmers across the state this year,” stated Abigail.
As a representative of the Dairy Farmers of Washington, the State Dairy Ambassador and Alternates will visit schools, attend local and state fairs, appear at Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) events, parades and many more activities including addressing the Washington State Legislature promoting the health and nutrition benefits of dairy products.
Our dairy community was well represented by the 2017-2018 Washington State Dairy Ambassador Anna Teachman and Alternate State Dairy Ambassadors Juliana LeClair and Claire Leininger. These young ladies traveled around the state educating students, parents and others on the positive impact and value of Washington’s dairy industry and the importance of dairy products.
Congratulations to all those who competed for the 2018 – 2019 Washington State Dairy Ambassador title!
