'Let me Call you Sweetheart' photo contest sweet with winnersThe Mountaineer Facebook contest announces winners
The Mountaineer ran a “Let me Call you Sweetheart” photo contest on Facebook, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The response was overwhelming.
Facebook fans submitted pictures of babies, parents, grandparents, engaged couples, brothers, sisters, cats, dogs, a potbellied pig, and a motorcycle — all very important “sweethhearts” in their lives.
More than 3,000 votes were cast, and the winners, based on number of “Likes” on The Mountaineer’s Facebook page as of noon Feb. 7, were: First place, Paul and Lisa Stiles, submitted by Kaitlyn Stiles; second place, Jayden Chance Richardson, submitted by Crystal Markrush; third place, Dan Eaton and Morgan Mills, submitted by Morgan Mills. Those pics are printed in today’s Guide.
Since there were so many great photos submitted, Honorable Mentions (those who came closets to the top vote-getters) have been printed either in The Guide or here, plus a few Editor’s choice photos, too.
Thank you to all who submitted photos or voted in the contest. Stay tuned for the next Facebook photo contest, “Easter Finest,” to be announced soon.
