					               2010-2011 WASHINGTON STATE DAIRY AMBASSADOR PROGRAM CONTRACT

This contract is a binding agreement between the Washington State Dairy Women (hereinafter “Dairy Women”) and
_________________________ (hereinafter “contestant”) and contestant’s parent(s)/guardian(s).

In consideration of the Dairy Women allowing contestant to participate in the 2010 Washington State Dairy
Ambassador Contest, it is agreed by and between the undersigned parties that if the contestant is selected as the
Washington State Dairy Ambassador, (hereinafter “Ambassador”) or as a Washington State Ambassador Alternate
(hereinafter “Alternate”) the following shall apply:

    1.    The contestant will hold the title of Ambassador/Alternate from June 25, 2010 until a new
         Ambassador/Alternate is selected. Should the Ambassador marry or become unable to perform the duties
         of Ambassador, as determined by the Dairy Women’s Ambassador Committee (hereinafter “Ambassador
         Committee”), the title will pass to the individual selected by the judges as the first alternate, provided she
         remains eligible to serve and is available to serve as determined by the Ambassador Committee. If that is
         not the case, the title will pass to the individual selected by the judges as the second alternate, subject to
         the same rules of eligibility. Should an Alternate marry or become unable to perform the duties of alternate,
         as determined by the Ambassador committee, that title will pass to an individual previously selected by the
         Judges to be the next alternate.
    2.   The scheduling of the Ambassador/Alternate during her reign will be established by the Washington State
         Dairy Women Event Coordinator. The Ambassador will be reimbursed at a per diem rate of $100 for a full
         day (over 4 hours) and $50 for a part day (4 hours or less) plus expenses. The Alternates will receive $50
         per diem plus expenses. If the Alternate is called upon to perform duties in the absence of the State
         Ambassador, she will receive appropriate per diem.
    3.   The Ambassador will be provided additions to her wardrobe for official appearances as deemed necessary
         by the Ambassador Committee. The Ambassador will be assisted with these purchases by the Ambassador
         Committee’s appointed consultant. If an Alternate is called upon to complete the duties of the Ambassador,
         she will be provided additions to her wardrobe as deemed necessary by the Ambassador Committee.
    4.   At the end of her year’s reign, the Ambassador will be eligible to receive a scholarship of $7000.00,
         $6000.00 from the Washington State Dairy Products Commission and $1000.00 from the Washington State
         Dairy Women, to be paid to the college of her choice. If for any reason the Ambassador is unable to
         complete her reign, the scholarship eligibility amount will be divided on a pro-rated basis between the
         Ambassador and the alternate who completes her reign.
         At the end of their year’s reign, Alternates will each be eligible to receive a $2000.00 scholarship, $600.00
         from the Washington State Dairy Products Commission and $1400.00 from the Washington State Dairy
         Women, to be paid to the college of their choice. If for any reason an Alternate is unable to complete her
         reign, the scholarship sum will be reduced on a pro-rata basis.
         The Ambassador/Alternates must begin to draw from available scholarship funds within two years of
         completing their reign. If they do not, they will receive, in lieu of the scholarship, the amount as follows:
         Ambassador, $1000; Alternates, $275. Upon the payment, the applicable scholarship fund will no longer be
         available. Once the Ambassador/Alternate begins to draw from her scholarship fund, she has four years
         from which to draw the balance. If she does not use the entire scholarship amount within the four years, the
         scholarship fund will no longer be available.
         If the Ambassador/Alternate has a bachelor’s degree or equivalent degree at the time of her selection as
         Ambassador/Alternate, the scholarship money shall be available for post graduate study or as an
         educational reimbursement for documented, previously incurred college expense.
    5.   All appearances of the Ambassador/Alternate must be approved by the Ambassador Committee.
         Contestant agrees that all persons requesting her appearance will be asked to contact the Dairy Women’s
         Event Coordinator. In addition, mandated appearances for State Alternate Dairy Ambassadors are included
         in the Washington State Alternate Ambassador Guidelines.
    6. It is understood and agreed that the position of Ambassador/Alternate is created to perform a public
        relations function for dairy farmers and for the entire dairy industry in the State of Washington. Therefore,
        during her reign, the Ambassador/Alternate must reflect wholesomeness and the health-giving benefits of
        dairy products if she is to effectively function as the Ambassador/Alternate. The impression the
        Ambassador/Alternate leaves with the people she meets should encourage them to use dairy products and
        to build favorable attitudes toward dairying in general. For these reasons, the Dairy Women, acting through
        its Ambassador Committee, reserves the right to remove an Ambassador/Alternate from her position if the
        Ambassador/Alternate ceases to be able to effectively reflect the attributes determined necessary for that
        position by the Dairy Women. It is agreed that such a determination lies exclusively with the Dairy Women
        acting through its Ambassador Committee and that the contestant has no contractual or other right to
        remain in the position of Ambassador/Alternate for the anticipated duration of her reign.
    7. The title of Washington State Dairy Ambassador/Alternate may be used by contestant only with the express
        permission of the Dairy Women. Except with the express written permission of the Ambassador Committee
        of the Washington State Dairy Women, contestant will not endorse any product or otherwise us the name
        Washington State Dairy Ambassador/Alternate, or any combination thereof, either directly or indirectly to
        sponsor or endorse any product or otherwise engage in any promotional activities in which the name
        “Washington State Dairy Ambassador” is used or implied.
    8. As the Ambassador/Alternate, the contestant will carry out duties as assigned by the Dairy Women, whose
        program coordinator, or someone assigned by her, will accompany the contestant on all approved
        appearances. Contestant must be willing to adjust her schedule to travel in order to make appearances
        throughout the state. Appearances will be scheduled with schools, civic, fraternal, professional and social
        organizations, and with the media. Contestant agrees to comply with Washington State Dairy Ambassador
        Guidelines as they are established from time to time by the Ambassador Committee.
    9. It is agreed that the Dairy Women, its membership, including the Dairy Ambassador Committee and the
        Dairy Ambassador Coordinator, will be held harmless from any legal action which may result from their
        sponsorship or management of the Dairy Ambassador Program.
    10. The contestant hereby certifies that she has read the 2010 Washington State Dairy Ambassador Contest
        Rules and that she meets the eligibility standards identified in said rules. These rules are incorporated into
        this contract as if fully set forth herein; provided, if there is any conflict between the terms of said rules and
        the terms of this contract, the terms of this contract shall prevail.
    11. This contract represents the entire agreement between the parties and, except at expressly identified
        herein, there are not verbal or other agreements, which alter or expand the terms of this contract.

The foregoing is hereby accepted and consented to by me on this _____day of __________, 20____
