“This is the first time I’ve ever entered Noah in this type of contest,” said Noah’s mother, Adrienne Doyle, who found out about the contest after purchasing a Balloon Time Helium Balloon Kit for her son’s birthday party in September 2009. “Of course I think he’s cute, but he’s mine! Noah loves having his picture taken.”
Fifty first-prize winners also received a Balloon Time Helium Balloon Kit.
“We all have those moments in life that make us truly happy, such as birthday or holiday celebrations or just spending time with the ones we love,” said Penny Warner, Balloon Time’s party planning expert. “Noah’s joyful and infectious smile caught the judges’ attention. We’re glad to have yet another child who embodies fun and happiness featured on Balloon Time products throughout the next year.”
Parents nationwide were encouraged to enter their children ages 3-11 in the contest at PutAFaceOnFun.com or at Shutterfly.com, the free, leading online photo service that makes it easy, convenient and fun for consumers to preserve their digital photos. Each photograph was judged by an independent panel of judges based on the following criteria: smile, age appropriateness, expression of fun and suitability for appearing on packaging.
