Bladen County has some of the cutest kids around. Don’t believe it? Just glance around any elementary school, day care or recreation center; there you’ll find the proof smiling back at you.
With all that cuteness in mind, we are encouraging parents and other family members to show them off, and we’re giving you the outlet to do just that.
Once again this year, we, along with our advertising sponsor — Badcock Home Furniture & More of Elizabethtown — are holding the Cutest Kids Contest, which can be found online at www.bladenjournal.com.
So, if you know some of those cute kids, promote them by encouraging their parents or grandparents to show them off, and if you want to see them win, come June 15, start voting for them.
Children from birth to age 12 are eligible to be the Bladen Journal’s Cutest Kid for 2014 or a winner in any of six other categories: newborn; toddler; ages 2-3; ages 4-6; ages 7-8; and ages 9-12 This is a fun competition that allows us and you, both our print readers and our online visitors, an opportunity to promote children.
All one has to do is visit www.bladenjournal.com, click on the Cutest Kids logo and follow the simple directions to first upload photos, and later in the month to cast votes.
And, naturally, watch the paper — and the website — to see who’s entered and, once voting begins, who’s leading the pack.
Everyone can enter. All you really need is an email address. Everything about the contest is free, including the fun you’ll have uploading pictures and watching the progress as the contest grows and all those adorable pictures begin popping up on the website and in the newspaper.
What’s not to love? After all, it’s those smiles, those bright eyes, those adorable grins and those gorgeous faces that make the little cutie’s so irresistible in the first place.
We at the Bladen Journal hope you have fun with the contest, entering as often as the rules will allow, and, when the time comes, voting … and voting often.
