Cutest baby contest gets underway

It is that time of year again! Time to submit your entries for the Cutest Baby Contest.

The Cutest Baby Contest is sponsored by the Hancock Record each year with profits from the contest donated to the Hancock School Foundation. The Foundation provides funds for the enhancement of education for area children.

To enter your baby in the contest simply submit a photo along with a $10 entry fee. Accompanying the photo must be the baby's name, age, address and parents' and/or grandparents' name. The deadline to enter the contest is April 1. The Hancock Record will retain $5 of the entry fee to cover the cost of scanning and printing the pictures in color along with the prize.

The pictures of the babies will be included in the April 8 issue on-line of the Record without names. You will be the judges for the cutest baby. The winner determined by the readers will receive a $50 savings bond for the honor.

The babies do not have to live in Hancock or even this area. Grandparents are welcome to submit pictures of their grandchildren. Proud aunts, uncles and cousins can share baby pictures. The babies must be 3 years old or younger to qualify. We are also asking for one entry per child.

Votes can be mailed or emailed. We will be limiting emailed votes to only five per email address. Votes can also be cast by phone with the same restrictions. Each vote must be accompanied by the name of the voter to ensure that only one vote is cast per person.

Pictures can be mailed to us at P.O. Box 425, Hancock MN 56244, dropped off in our drop box at Hancock Co-op or emailed to Please send the $10 fee before April 1.
