Waterville’s Emma Kuball was crowned the 70th Princess Kay of the Milky Way at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Wednesday night.
The 19-year-old college student represented Rice County and will serve as the official goodwill ambassador for more than 1,800 Minnesota dairy families.
Kuball and both runner-ups will receive a scholarship. During her year-long reign, Kuball will make public appearances and visit classrooms. Her first official duty will be to sit in a rotating cooler as her likeness is carved in butter.
The state fair opens Wednesday morning.
