For over 45 years, the Edmonson County Homemakers have put on the Baby Show during the Edmonson County Fair. This year there was 106 contestants, 72 of which were local. Terri Webb Co-chair said “It’s a great opportunity for everyone to show off all the pretty babies while helping the homemakers raise money to give back to community.”
Categories included girls and boys 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2 years old and 3 years old.
“We do it so we can give a 500 dollar scholarship to local high school students. This is one of the many ways we contribute to scholarships” said Janice Simon, the Edmonson County Homemakers chair.
Simon also joked that this is the first year she has been able to tell the judges her full name because up until this year, her grandbabies were participants.
Each category had a girl and boy winner along with 1st and 2nd runner up. The winner of each category competed in the final rounds for overall boy and overall girl winner.
