The Oregon Dairy Princess Ambassador (DPA) Program has been promoting the dairy industry since 1959 through classroom presentations, county and state fairs, community events, summer camps, school assemblies, and more.

State and County DPAs are given the opportunity to develop valuable skills, including public speaking, grooming, poise, and confidence. They also form lifelong friendships, learn about nutrition, make a difference in their community, earn college scholarships, and can possibly receive internship credits.
