Most parents are pretty bias when it comes to their own children: you adore every single inch of them and brag to everyone you know that they are the cutest human on planet earth. Are they the cutest baby in the entire Utica area?

If you believe the answer to that question is yes, you can enter them right now into the Utica NY Cutest Baby Contest.

For free, you can submit one picture of the cute baby in your life. Once you submit, you can't change the photo, so make sure it's actually the cutest one in your camera roll, the best of the best!

According to contest rules, there are some requirements that you should be aware of. Babies must be under 48 months (4 years old) as of August 1st, 2021 to be eligible to enter the competition. If contest organizers suspect that your child is older, they reserve the right to ask for a birth certificate as proof of age. Along with that rule, babies must also reside within 15 miles of the City of Utica. Contest organizers can also ask for proof of residency.

How Is The "Cutest" Baby Selected?

Gather a list of all your friends and family, and ask them vote! Everyone is permitted to vote once every 24 hours, and voting is managed by your IP and email addresses, so you'll get an error message if you try to beat the system and vote more than once.

The three babies with the most votes will win the following:

1st Place- $500 will be deposited into a savings account at Bank of Utica in your child’s name. The idea is to be giving these cute babies a jump start on life. Winners of 1st Place will also receive a family dinner at Joey’s Restaurant, a celebratory cake from Holy Pizzoli and a high quality print of your photo from PJ Green.

2nd Place- A family BBQ dinner from Voss’ and a dessert platter from Holy Pizzoli.

3rd Place- A custom baby care package brought to you by I love Utica and our community sponsors that will include some locally sourced products for the child and a few items for mom and dad to enjoy as well.
