In celebration of new life and anticipation of spring weather, Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is hosting its 13th annual Cutest Baby contest during March and April, according to Kim Rieger, VP of marketing for HRMC.
“This time of year has us longing for the warmer and longer days after a dark winter,” said Rieger. “This contest gives us a chance to have a little competitive fun searching for ‘the cutest baby’ while celebrating the miracle of new life.”
During the month of March, parents and grandparents are encouraged to enter a picture of their precious baby on Facebook. The nominee must live in HRMC’s seven-county service area and be under the age of 12 months as of March 1. Therefore, the baby must have been born between March 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021.
In April, the contest will again feature daily voting on Facebook. “People are encouraged to vote once every 24 hours,” explained Rieger. “So, parents and grandparents, promote your entry to keep the votes coming in throughout the month.”
Winners will be chosen via a People’s Choice vote. The top vote getter will win the grand prize of a $100 certificate to a photo studio in Huron, baby gear valued at $100, commemorative onesie and blanket and a starring role in an upcoming HRMC television commercial. The runner-up winner will receive a commemorative plaque and baby gear valued at $50.
Entries must be received by 4 p.m. on March 31, or postmarked by March 31 to be eligible. Voting opens on Wednesday, April 1. To learn more and enter, just visit HRMC’s Facebook page or www.huronregional.org/cutest-baby-contest.
