Once Julianne and a panel of other judges have selected the top entries, teens across the country will have the opportunity to have their say and make Milk Mustache campaign history by casting their votes to help us choose The 9.
The 9 winning girls will get to experience what it’s really like to be a Milk Mustache celebrity – just like Julianne. They’ll be flown to Los Angeles where they’ll meet their fellow winners before posing together for a Milk Mustache ad, to be featured as a special two-page spread in the pages of Seventeen magazine this fall. Then this elite group of nine girls will have the chance to continue to make a positive impact on other teen girls throughout the year via their own Power of 9 blog on seventeen.com plus milk “insider” opportunities such as interviewing upcoming Milk Mustache celebrities and attending other “VIP” milk events.
Benefits From Head to Toe
Julianne isn’t the only one who counts on milk to look and feel her best. Registered dietitian and author of “The Beauty Diet,” Lisa Drayer, M.A., R.D. wants teens to know that making the right choices, such as eating nutrient-rich foods and drinking lowfat or fat free milk, can help give teens the confidence to accomplish their dreams.
“It’s amazing how looking good and feeling good can make you feel empowered. And a big part of that comes from making smart food and lifestyle choices,” said Drayer. “Milk’s such an easy way to get nine essential nutrients that can provide so many benefits, inside and out – like protein and vitamin A for healthy skin and calcium and vitamin D for strong bones and healthy teeth. And along with exercise, the protein in milk can help build lean muscle to help you stay toned and fit.”
In addition, research suggests that teens who drink milk instead of sugary beverages tend to be leaner than those who drink little or no milk.
