PRINCETON — The final two entries in this year’s Princeton Junior Woman’s Club baby contest have been announced. Emmett Whitlock, 6 months, is the son of Andrew and Haley Whitlock of Princeton; and Aydrian Johnson, 4 1/2 months, is the son of Kelsey Johnson of Ladd.

Voting will continue until noon on Sept. 13. The photographs are rotated on a weekly basis between Central Bank, Midland States Bank, Centrue Bank and Heartland Bank & Trust. Each photograph will have a corresponding canister in which to place votes. One dollar equals 100 votes. The winner will be notified on Sept. 13 and introduced during that evening’s Homestead Festival awards ceremony and pork dinner/ice cream social.

All winners and their parents will have a spot in the Homestead Festival parade.
