Posted by: tdt -


The Second Annual Kid Photo Contest is about to begin, but we need a few more entries. Get your best photos, candid or professional of your baby or toddler showing off her cutest or his biggest grin into the Texan and help raise money for Meals-on-Wheels. If you have the perfect shot of your kid doing something adorable, we want to see it and we would love to show it off in the Texan!
Simply bring the photo and a $5 registration fee by the Dalhart Texan no later than 5:00 p.m. Friday, February 1, 2013. (Child must be five or younger as of February 28, 2013 to be eligible)  Get your friends and family to vote starting February 5, 2012, “stuff the cup,” for the Meals-on-Wheels. It’s fun and it’s for a great cause. The total amount of money collected in the child’s name wins! All of the collected money will be donated to DSCC. Voting ends Monday, February 27, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. and the winners will be announced Wednesday, February 26, 2013. Parents can and should vote for their own child.
