The top 12 vote getters in the Journal’s Beautiful Baby Contest will be published in Monday’s newspaper.

Friday was the last day for residents to cast their ballots, after a three-week voting period.

“We want to thank the community for their participation in the contest,” said Heather Kozuchowsky, Journal sales representative and contest coordinator. “The proceeds are going to a great cause.”

All money from the voting will be donated to the Corry Area Chamber of Commerce’s CorryFest event. Funds will specifically be used to help pay for a fireworks display.

The overall winner of the contest will receive $100 U.S. savings bond. The winner and the 11 other top vote getters will also be part of a 2010 calendar that will be distributed in December throughout the community.

Tricia Patten, owner of Tricia Patten’s Photography, 29 W. South St. Corry, will photograph each contest winner for the calendar.

In Monday’s Journal, pictures of the top 12 winners will be printed on the front page.

The announcement will also be posted on the Journal’s Web site., at about 8 p.m.
