Cover Model Contest Winners Announced

By Laurie Evans

At Lexington Family Magazine’s Summer Camps & Activities Fair on April 13, the biggest crowd all day was at Robin Allen Photography’s booth.

Robin took photos of 205 children for our annual Cover Model Contest.

Held every year at the Fair, the contest is how we find the cutest kids in the Bluegrass to pose for covers throughout the year.

It was a tough job narrowing the list of all these beautiful children to just 12 finalists.

Our judges ooh-ed and aah-ed over the photos of adorable babies, giggling toddlers, bashful little boys and beautiful young ladies.

We settled on the six youngsters pictured here. These children will appear on the covers of our magazine over the next 12 months.

Contest winner Somer du Toit is smiling at you from this month’s cover!

Check out the adorable romper from Blossom Maternity, Infant & Child little Somer is wearing.

Want to see your child on the cover? Participate in next year’s Cover Model Contest at the Summer Camps & Activities Fair on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Lexington Christian Academy.
