We would like to thank everyone who participated in our contest. Whether you were a contestant, voter, or an advocate for your favorite model we are appreciative for you help in making our second model search contest a huge success!
This year we had a total of 26 contestants. Each of the them received a “like” on our Facebook fan page that counted as one vote. We had a total of 4,335 votes, with our top contestant receiving 751 votes. Hailey Ploof of Roanoke was our Facebook Fan Favorite. In second place was Newnan, Georgia’s Lindsey Spooner and in third place was Riley Huey of Anniston.
Our panel of judges voted separately from our Facebook Fan vote and the top five were invited into our office for an interview. The contestants participating in the interview were Katelyn Kirby of Roanoke, Riley Huey of Anniston, Hailey Ploof of Roanoke, Auburn Richardson of Roanoke, and Taylor Richard of Palmetto, Ga.
Please look at the faces on the following pages closely. You may recognize them in upcoming issues as all contestants will be invited to join in a group photo session as well as be called upon for future photo shoots for our advertisers.
Our Southern Holiday Life cover model search will begin in August. You can read more details on this contest at the end of the contestants photos.
