Update on Beautiful Eyes Contest

Remember the picture I submitted of Kayla for the Prevent Blindness America's Most Beautiful Eyes Contest? The public voting period ending on Sep 30th. The top winners from each state were named and Kayla won for the state of SC!

Now the next round will be determined by a panel of judges selected by Prevent Blindness America. They will chose 5 from all the state winners ... then a panel of 3 celebrity judges will narrow those 5 down to the top 3. Winners will be announced Nov 19.

Our local paper did a nice write up of Kayla being the state winner: The Eyes Have it for Local Girl.

And she is even at the top of the front page on the hard copy edition of the paper (I wasn't expecting that!):


You can see a list of all the state winners here.

Awesome! I'm thrilled, but not surprised. Those baby blues are what captured me when I visited your blog via a blog carnival years ago and they've kept me coming back ever since.

Love how her eyes look on the front page of that newspaper!

Hope she wins the top prize!

Congratulations! I found your blog after Prevent Blindness America posted a link to the article (my daughter is the MN finalist). What a fantastic photo - she really does have beautiful eyes - and a great article too. How cool to see her on the front page of the newspaper.
