Five-year-old Dallas girl will be featured on packaging, receive Disney Cruise LineŽ family vacation
COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Five-year-old Caiden White's patriotic grin stood out from the crowd, beating out more than 1,500 entries nationwide to become this year's Balloon TimeŽ "Put A Face On Fun" contest winner. As a reward, Caiden participated in a professional photo shoot and will be featured on Balloon Time's packaging over the next year, and she will head to sea on a Disney Cruise LineŽ vacation with her family.
"We're all really shocked and excited about Caiden winning the contest, as are our friends and family who voted for Caiden's photo online," said Caiden's mother, Pamela White, who snapped the winning photo while watching the fireworks display at their local church. "Caiden is really outgoing and always smiling. It wasn't tough to find a photo of her having fun!"
Caiden took home the grand-prize spot, but 50 first-prize winners also received a Balloon Time Helium Balloon Kit.
"The 'Put A Face on Fun' contest is all about highlighting the special moments in life that make us smile, and Caiden's expression in her winning photo is infectious," said Janna Stanford, Balloon Time Marketing Coordinator. "There's no better way to spread Caiden's joy than including her photo on our packaging for all to see, and sending her family on a vacation to capture even more happy memories."
Parents nationwide were encouraged to enter their children ages 3-11 in the contest at PutAFaceOnFun.com. 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. New to this year's contest, parents and friends of participants were able to get in on the fun, as a portion of the final tally was determined by America's vote.
