Deadline for Valentine Cutie contest is Feb. 4

January 13, 2022

The deadline for all mothers, dads, grandmothers and grandfathers to showcase their beautiful young ones is rapidly approaching.

If you have a special child or grandchild that you are proud of, then you have until Friday, Feb. 4, to submit your child’s photo for the McGregor Mirror’s Valentine’s Cuties contest.

The Mirroer will be publishing its “Little Mr. & Miss Valentine’s Cutie Contest” next month.

“We want to give everyone a chance to show off their young children and grandchildren,” said new Mirror Publisher Tommy Wells. “My wife and I thought it would be a great way to recognize the young ones, as well as those who cherish them, by holding a Little Mr. & Miss Valentine’s Cutie promotion. It is always a heart-warming piece for everyone, our readers included.”

Wells said one lucky winner would be chosen as this year’s winner. The childrens’ photos will appear in the Feb. 13 issue of the paper. The grand prize winner will receive a $100 savings bond. The top three finishers in each age category will also receive monetary prizes.

Residents can enter their children or grandchildren (ages 0 through 7) in the newspapers’ contest by submitting their favorite color photo.

“We encouraged everyone to send in their photos and show off their young children or grandchildren,” Wells said.

All photos, forms and the $5 entry fee must be received in the mail at P.O. Box 415 by Feb. 4. Photos can also be emailed to
