The Jefferson Post staff is still on the hunt for some adorable young faces, and we’re hoping the reading public — both in print and online — will once again help us find those cuties as the Post teams with Vannoy Construction, title sponsor of the contest, and Walmart, sponsor of the 12-24 month toddlers category, to continue its annual online contest designed to promote your children.
“We are thrilled to be offering this contest once again,” said Jefferson Post General Manager Cliff Clark. “It is one of our most popular online contests and a real winner with readers, too. Everyone loves children, and everyone loves to see all those adorable, smiling faces that we publish throughout the contest.”
When the Post held the contest in 2012, it had dozens of entries and thousands of hits on the online contest site, making it a tremendous draw for both readers and advertisers.
This year’s contest not only provides bragging rights to those chosen as the newspaper’s Cutest Kids, it comes with a little prize money, to boot — $100 to the overall winner thanks to Vannoy Construction, and $50 for the winner of the 12-24 month age category, thanks to Walmart.
“We cannot thank our advertisers enough for helping us promote this contest,” Clark said. “Without them, contests like these wouldn’t be possible. We encourage you to support them and thank them for being a part of Cutest Kids.”
The contest is now live, meaning parents can submit their children’s pictures at any time. While submissions for the contest will continue through June 28, voting begins on June 15 and last until June 28, so the sooner you post that photo of your cutest kid, the better the chance of winning.
So start sorting through those pictures now, said Clark, to find that perfect picture to enter of your son or daughter, or perhaps even both, then go to www.jeffersonpost.com, find the Cutest Kids link and follow the simple instructions for entering.
The contest is free. All you have to have is a valid email address and a desire to see your child promoted.
“We hope everyone will have fun with this contest. I know we will,” Clark said.
