SALT LAKE CITY -- A Provo teenager is one of nine girls chosen to appear in a national "Got Milk" campaign milk mustache advertisement.
Kimberly Rosen, a senior at Timpview High School, was among hundreds of girls who submitted a video to compete in "The Power of 9" contest. It is sponsored by actress and dancer Julianne Hough, the national Milk Mustache "Got Milk?" campaign and Seventeen magazine.
Rosen told KSL Monday morning she learned about the contest while she and her mother were looking online for a "Got Milk" scholarship. She missed the scholarship application deadline but saw information about the contest."It sounded really fun, so we submitted our video," she said. On the video, she and dance partner Matthew Holden perform ballroom dancing moves. "They were looking for different things that stand out. On my video I was dancing and that's different than what most people did. So I think that helped me stand out," she said.
"The Power of 9" represents the nine essential nutrients in milk.
Rosen says participating in the ad photo shoot was "amazing."
"It was really fun to do. It was very professional. We got our hair done, we got our makeup done. We got our wardrobe picked out for us. It was just really cool to work with all of them," she said. "The girls were really fun and outgoing."
In the ad, Rosen appears to the side of the "9."
She told KSL the milk mustaches seen in the ads are made from milk products including cream cheese and other thickeners, not milk alone.
The ad will run in the magazine in September.
The Daily Herald reports Rosen has received a scholarship in ballroom dance to BYU and will be on the ballroom dance backup tour team this fall.
