Midwest Dairy Council's Fuel Up Milk Contest Winners

After heading back to school this fall, students across the Midwest enjoyed creating their very own milk mustache poses for a chance to win Midwest Dairy Council's Fuel Up with Milk World School Milk Day Contest. Students were encouraged to submit photos of themselves wearing real milk mustaches or milk mustache stickers while participating in various school activities -- eating breakfast or lunch, working at a computer, doing a favorite physical activity or simply posing with a teacher or school principal.
