Helm noted that each student will receive a grant in the amount of $3,500 to be used toward college expenses.  Those receiving the awards include:

“This additional financial assistance is a tremendous help for students who are facing rising costs of higher education,” Helm said.  “I wish these young adults continued success throughout their lives.” 

Also during the Farm Show, Helm participated in the Celebrity Cow Milking Contest on Jan. 14 and her team, the Milk Shakers, which included Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding, Sen. Lloyd Smucker (R-13), WGAL Reporter Matt Barcaro and Pennsylvania Dairy Princess Marissa Weidensaul, won first place. 

The eight-year-old Brown Swiss cow, Windy Springs Cowboy Salida, owned by Kenny Stanton of Everett, Bedford County, gave the Milk Shakers 4.5 pounds of milk, more than two pounds ahead of the competitors. 

“I truly enjoy taking part in the cow milking contest,” Helm said.  “It’s a wonderful and rewarding experience, and my teammates and I worked together to beat the competition.”
