Leader announces 1st Baby of 2014 contest

December 18, 2013

Having the first baby of the New Year usually entitles parents to things such as newspaper articles and bragging rights.

To that, the Oxford Leader wishes to add an exciting array of prizes from local businesses as part of its "1st Baby of 2014" contest. Included is a free five-year subscription to this weekly newspaper, a $260 value.

The winning baby must be officially born on or after Jan. 1, 2014 to parents who are residents of Oxford Township, Oxford Village, Addison Township, the Village of Leonard or the Oxford school district.

All babies must be officially entered in the contest to win. The winning baby will be the one with the earliest birth date and time.

Each entry must include a written statement from the family doctor giving the exact time, day, date and place of birth.

Information such as the baby's name, sex and weight must be included as well as the parents' names, address and daytime telephone number.

All entries must be mailed or delivered to the Oxford Leader by Jan. 5, 2014.

Entries can be mailed to P.O. Box 108, Oxford, MI 48371 or dropped off at the Leader office located at 666 S. Lapeer Rd. in Oxford.
