More entries received in baby contest

PRINCETON — Three more entries have been received in this year’s Princeton Junior Woman’s Club baby contest.

They are: Kinsleigh Prokes, 17 months, the daughter of Kristina and Michael Prokes of Princeton; Brielle Alexandra Faber, 1 year, the daughter of Derik and Tiffany Faber of Princeton; and Jaxson Hofmann, 10 months, the son of Vince Hofmann and Samantha Davies.

Entrants must be Bureau County residents under 24 months of age as of Sept. 13. Contest entries must be emailed to Princetonjuniors@hotmail.com by Aug. 15.

To enter, email a snapshot-size color photograph of the child to Princetonjuniors@hotmail.com. No professional photos will be accepted. The child’s name, sex, current age, birth date, and parents’ names, addresses, and home and work phone numbers must be included in the email.

Each photograph will have a corresponding canister in which to place votes. One dollar equals 100 votes. The winner will be notified Sept. 12 and introduced during that evening’s Homestead Festival awards ceremony and pork dinner/ice cream social.

Prizes will be given to the winners, as well as the first boy and girl runners-up. All winners and their parents will have a spot in the Homestead Festival parade.

The Princeton Junior Woman’s Club will donate all the proceeds from the contest back to the community through various projects and organizations.
