In celebration of new life and anticipation of spring, Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is hosting its sixth annual Cutest Baby contest during March and April, according to Kim Rieger, VP of marketing for HRMC.
“Ask any parent or grandparent and they will tell you their baby is cute – and he or she is” 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 or short video of their precious baby. The nominee must live in the HRMC seven-county service area and be under the age of 12 months as of the contest start date, March 1, 2014.
“We always have a great response to this contest and it is fun to watch the entries roll in,” Rieger said. “This year we are encouraging more people to enter a video instead of a photo – technology has made it so much easier to shoot a short clip of your precious little one on your cell phone and upload the video. Watching a cute baby on video makes everyone smile and laugh.”
Winners will be chosen via a People’s Choice vote. Throughout the month of April, area residents are invited to go to the hospital’s website and vote for their choice of “Cutest Baby.” The top vote getter will win the grand prize of a $100 certificate to a photo studio in Huron, a $200 savings bond and a starring role in an HRMC television commercial. The runner up will receive a $100 savings bond. Winners will be announced on or before Mother’s Day.
To enter or to view the babies, just visit the hospital’s web site at www.huronregional.org.
