It’s the 5th annual Crusade Baby Calendar!
The WHAS Crusade for Children will create a 15-month calendar starting October, 2011. It’s the fifth annual Crusade Baby Calendar. The contest is open to babies who are not older than 2-years-old by June 1, 2011 .
How it works
As baby photos are submitted, they will be seen here on WHASCrusade.org. People then vote for their favorite baby by sending in donations to the Crusade. The baby with the most donations (votes) will appear on the calendar cover. The baby with the second most donations will appear on his or her favorite month. Third place will choose his or her month and so on til all months are filled. You must read the official rules below.
The Crusade will have professional photos taken of the top 16 babies and those are the photos that will appear in the calendar. All babies will be included in the calendar. Those who don’t make the top 16 will get day and date spots chosen in finishing order. Vote getter number 17 will get first choice of day and date, then number 18, etc.
