Jace, Reese, Ryan and Veronica, had the honor of being Half-Pint Judges during the Fiesta Bowl Parade. Tasked with the duty of judging the parade floats as they passed by the kid-size broadcast booth. The morning started with helping AzFamily 3TV report the weather before the parade started. Then our judges were rushed off to a morning breakfast where they were honored with plaques for being selected as this years Half-Pint Judges. They even met Shane Doan, former Arizona Coyote player who served as the Fiesta Bowl Grand Marshall.
As the parade got started our the Half-Pint judges received so much attention by local celebrities stopping by their booth with giveaways and friendly greetings. Throughout the parade they were interviewed on live TV giving updates on what floats they had seen and which one had won their favor. They closed out the parade by announcing their winner, The Arizona Twirling Athletes. The day of a Half-Pint Judge was full of fun, prizes, giveaways and even TV time!
Thank you to our judges for rocking it on such a special day!

Each year the Arizona Milk Producers selects four kids between 3rd and 5th grade to be Half-Pint Judges. Winners are selected by entering a video online telling what their favorite dairy product is and why. The contest takes place annually through the month of November.
