The winners will be selected by YOU! We’ll be posting the photo entries (first names and ages only) to our Facebook page once the submission deadline closes, where you, your friends and family will be able to vote for your favorite photo with a Like. (Comments and shares will not be counted, so please direct people to the original photo post to submit their Like vote.)
