We hope they’ve all been entered in the Jefferson Post’s cutest kid contest, and that they’re already well on their way to being crowned this year’s overall and age bracket winner.
The cutest kid contest is being sponsored by several local businesses, including the title sponsor, High Country Ear, Nose and Throat of Jefferson and Boone, who will award a $250 savings bond to the overall winner. Age bracket sponsors, Parker Tie Co. of West Jefferson, Ashe County Ford, Independence Oil and LP Gas of Jefferson, Ross Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Boone, and Jefferson’s most famous builder Vannoy Construction are awarding prizes for the cutest kids in the separate age categories.
And while official voting began on June 1, to determine the winners, you, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and brothers and sisters can still enter your little heart-melters in the competition. The moment your cute kid photo is uploaded at www.jeffersonpost.com, ballots can be cast for your kid.
You can register at jeffersonpost.com, where it’s as simple as finding and clicking on the “Cutest Kids” icon midway down the page. Follow the simple directions, upload photos of your cutest kid, and stand back. This allows you to both enter your munchkin and vote.
Remember, it is free to enter and vote. So get with it. You do have to have a valid email address, and a cute child between the ages of birth and 12 years old. They can be yours, a relative, or a friend’s with permission.
