ST. PAUL, Minn. — A 20-year-old college student from Browerville has been crowned the 65th Princess Kay of the Milky Way.
Rebekka Paskewitz, who represented Todd County, earned the honor Wednesday night during a ceremony at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. She will serve as the official goodwill ambassador for nearly 3,000 Minnesota dairy farm families.
She is pursuing a degree in agricultural education at South Dakota State University.
County dairy princesses from throughout Minnesota competed for the Princess Kay title.
Blaize Dankers, who represented Wabasha County, and Korissa Lindquist, representing Kandiyohi County, were runners-up.
Paskewitz's first official duty as Princess Kay will be to sit in a rotating cooler for nearly six hours to have her likeness sculpted in a 90-pound block of butter on the Minnesota State Fair's opening day Thursday.
