  • Jakeboy, You should have read the requirements for these entrys. The family catagory WAS done by children with guidance and help from parents. They were on display at the city hall where one could enjoy and voice their opinion. The catagory that the 2 boys won in were for the 7 year old children and of course they would not have been able to do this by themselves. This is called family teaching their children and enjoying time together and sharing with the community. WE the family had as much fun teaching the children about entering in a contest where not everyone IS the winner but WAS a winner for participating and sharing their talents.

  • I know 2 of the 3 kids pictured and I would like to say that it doesnt matter if they done them themselves. It just goes to show that families are still doing things together. Thats all that matters. If I help my kids do something, but they do most of it, Im a proud mama. I dont take the credit. Good job kids. Hunter, Ninas proud of you!

  • why does everything have to be a contest? isn't it wonderful that parents want to spend time with their kids?.....finishing 1st doesn't really matter, does it?
