Exchange to hold fourth annual “Cutest Kiddo” contest

DALLAS – Youngsters competing to be the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s “Cutest Kiddo” will have the opportunity to flex some artistic muscle this year.

Through Aug. 9, Exchange patrons worldwide may post photographs of their children holding a completed coloring page to the Exchange Facebook page for the first-ever “‘Color Me’ Cutest Kiddo” contest.

Contestants may choose one of four coloring pages, all of which are available to print online at www.shopmyexchange.com/Community/PatriotFamily/. One of the pages is also available in the July 19 Exchange flyer.

The randomly chosen Grand Prize winner will be awarded a seven-night resort stay and an $800 gift card. An additional $5,000 in gift cards will be divided among first-, second-, third- and fourth-place winners in each age category, who will be selected by an online poll, held Aug. 19-23, of the Top 10 artists as selected by a panel of judges.

Winners of the contest will be announced sometime after Aug. 30.

“Inviting children to exercise their creativity is a natural progression for the ‘Cutest Kiddo’ contest,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “We feel adding this element not only makes it more fun and interactive, but connects us more to the individual families in our worldwide community.”

An online entry application can also be found on the Facebook page. Rules and regulations for the “‘Color Me’ Cutest Kiddo” contest may be found at www.shopmyexchange.com/Community/PatriotFamily/.
