Entries now are being accepted for the baby-picture contest at the Milan Indian Summer Festival. The deadline to enter is Aug. 18; entry fee is $5.

Entrants must be 3 years old or younger on Sept 1.

To enter, submit an 8-by-10-inch or 5-by-7-inch photo of your baby, along with his or her name, birthdate, parents' names, address, phone number (a number where you can be contacted is important), and a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you want your photo to be returned.

Send entries along with the $5 entry fee to Debbie Brown or Amber Hankins at 309 2nd Ave. E, Milan, IL 61264.

Photos of 12 finalists -- six boys and six girls -- will be displayed at the Milan Indian Summer Festival over Labor Day weekend. The winners will be the babies whose photos receive the most votes from festival-goers. One boy and one girl winner will each receive $50 and a trophy.

The contest is sponsored by the Milan Women's Club. Children and grandchildren of club members are not eligible to enter.
