Amy Kyllo, a 19-year-old college student from Byron, Minn., representing Olmsted County, was crowned the 66th Princess Kay of the Milky Way in an evening ceremony at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, Aug. 21.

Kyllo will serve as the official goodwill ambassador for nearly 3,000 Minnesota dairy farm families. She is the daughter of Paul and Susan Kyllo, and attends the Association Free Lutheran Bible School.

Ten county dairy princesses from throughout Minnesota competed for the Princess Kay of the Milky Way title. Elizabeth Krienke of Lester Praire, representing McLeod County, and Brittney Tiede of Le Center, representing Le Sueur County, were selected as runners-up.

Rachel Paskewitz of Browerville representing Todd County, Grace Jeurissen and Elizabeth Krienke both of Lester Prairie and representing McLeod County, were named scholarship winners. Kyllo was also named Miss Congeniality.

Throughout her yearlong reign as Princess Kay of the Milky Way, Kyllo will make public appearances to help connect consumers to Minnesota's dairy farm families. She will work to bring dairy to life through conversations, classroom visits and various speaking engagements.

Throughout the fair, Princess Kay and the other finalists will make appearances near the Butter Sculpture Booth in the Dairy Building, at the Moo Booth in the Dairy Barn and onstage at the CHS Miracle of Birth Center.

Princess Kay candidates are judged on their general knowledge of the dairy industry, communication skills and enthusiasm for dairy. Midwest Dairy sponsors the Princess Kay program, which is funded by dairy farmers through their promotion checkoff.
