In celebration of new life and anticipation of spring, Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is hosting its ninth annual Cutest Baby contest during March and April, according to Kim Rieger, VP of marketing for HRMC.
During the month of March, parents and grandparents were encouraged to enter their baby. The nominee needed to live in HRMC’s seven-county service area and be under the age of 12 months as of March 1, 2017.
Now in April, the contest will feature daily voting on Facebook. “People are encouraged to vote once every 24 hours,” explained Rieger. “To add to the mystery and excitement this year, vote totals will be hidden until the end of the contest. So, parents are encouraged to promote to family and friends daily voting for their entry.”
Winners will be chosen via a People’s Choice vote. Throughout this month, the public is invited to go to the hospital’s Facebook page and vote for one of the 72 entries to choose the “2017 Cutest Baby.” The top vote getter will receive a $100 gift certificate for a photo session at one of several photography studios in Huron, a gift basket with the latest baby gear (valued at $100), a commemorative onesie and blanket, and a chance to star in an HRMC television commercial. 1st Runner-Up will receive a gift basket with the latest baby gear (valued at $50).
Voting closes at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30. To learn more and vote, just visit HRMC’s Facebook page or www.huronregional.org/cutest-baby-contest.
