It’s that time of year again, time for The Community Voice’s 11th annual Mother and Daughter Look-a-Like Contest. 

Our mothers and daughters say it’s a fun and simple contest to participate in and perfectly timed around Mother’s Day. Year-after year, our staff is amazed at how strong some of these gene pools are.

Again this year, we expect to have to narrow down the entries and our staff will make the first cut. They’ll select 12 entries to advance as “finalists.” The finalists will appear in the May 23 edition of the paper. There will be two ways for the finalists to win.

People’s Choice Winner: Photos of the finalists will be posted on Facebook and everyone far and wide can vote for their favorite Mother/Daughter duo. The online voting period is from May 1 to May 14 at 11:59 PM. The duo with the most votes wins the People’s Choice Award Package. The People’s Choice Winning duo will be announced online May 15.

Panel Selection: Don’t worry if you don’t know a lot of people who you can encourage to vote for you online. A diverse and independent panel of judges will select 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner solely on how much the duos actually look-a-like. These winners will be announced in the May 23 edition of the paper.

Here are a few rules you need to know: 

1. If you’ve entered before and didn’t win a prize package, you can enter again. 

2. Yes, you can win the People’s Choice award and then still be selected as a one of the top three duos by our judging panel. That’s twice the prizes. 

3. Late entries absolutely will not be accepted. 

The deadline for entry is Fri., April 26 at 11:59 p.m. If you can’t enter online, you can bring a photograph to our office during regular business hours or you can mail the photo to us. Mailed photos will not be returned. If you bring the photo to our office, we can scan it while you wait and give it back to you. Our offices are at 2918 E. Douglas, Wichita, KS 67214. Our normal office hours are 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.,, Mon. – Fri. 

Complete list of prizes to be posted May 23.
