Babies from birth through 18 months can be entered in the competition for the title of the Cleveland Daily Banner’s Cutie, a gift from SkyRidge Medical Center and gift cards from Cooke’s Food Store and the Bank of Cleveland.
The winner and runner-up will be contacted by the Banner for presentation of the gifts and a photo to be published in the April 27 Sunday edition of the paper.
To participate, individuals must submit a photo and original entry form, along with proof of legal guardianship of the infant.
The entry photo should be no smaller than 4-by-6 inches and no larger than 8-by-10 inches, with the child’s first name and age included. The photo will not be returned.
A media release must be signed to allow the publishing of the photo. All babies must be residents of Tennessee. There is no entry fee for the contest.
The readers of the Banner will vote to select the “Cutie.” The photos of each contestant will run on a ballot page three times per week for three weeks.
Readers can send a newspaper ballot with their favorite “Cutie” selected. Only actual newspaper ballots will be accepted.
Entries and photos must be submitted in person no later than 5 p.m. on March 21 to the Cleveland Daily Banner, 1505 25th St.
Entry forms will be included in the Banner on March 11, 13, 16, 18 and 20.

An information sheet will be supplied to families detailing the judging process. All decisions are final.
Maybe your Cutie will be the Banner readers’ Cutie!
