Vandalia, Ohio, Nov. 29, 2007
- After an extensive nationwide search, Evenflo® today announced that Isabella Lin from Parma Heights, Ohio, is the winner of the “Baby, You’re a Star!” photo contest. America cast more than 340,000 votes for their favorite babies at www.evenflo.com, and the 2-year-old cutie walked away with the grand prize after receiving the most votes. Lin will receive a $10,000 educational scholarship, a suite of Evenflo products and will be included in Evenflo’s 2008 promotional materials.
Lin was entered into the contest at a photo shoot for area babies that Evenflo hosted at the North Olmsted Babies“R”Us store in June.
“We are thrilled that Isabella won the ‘Baby You’re A Star!’ contest and we look forward to working with Evenflo,” said Owen Lin, father of Isabella. “Isabella has always been our shining star so we’re pleased that everyone else thought so too!”
This summer, parents across the country entered their cuties into the contest by submitting a photo at www.evenflo.com or participating in one of the live photo shoot events that Evenflo hosted at Babies“R”Us stores in Tampa, Fla., Cleveland, Minneapolis, Denver, and Seattle. More than 6,000 babies were entered into the contest through the live photo shoots and online entries.
All “Baby, You’re a Star!” pictures were posted at www.evenflo.com for parents to share their baby’s photo with family and friends. The winning baby was determined by the total number of online votes received at www.evenflo.com.
