This fall, students across the Midwest – boys AND girls – were encouraged to sport mustaches. Milk mustaches, that is. It was all a part of Midwest Dairy Council’s Fuel Up with Milk World School Milk Day Contest. Students submitted photos of themselves participating in various school activities – eating breakfast or lunch, working at a computer, partaking in a favorite physical activity or simply posing with a teacher or school principal – all while wearing either a real milk mustache or milk mustache sticker.
