Little ones smile big for Moffat County Fair’s Cowboy Baby Contest

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Get your little buckaroos gussied up in their finest Westernwear because there's prizes to be won for the tiny tots in the Cowboy Baby Contest.

The most adorable part of the Moffat County Fair takes place Aug. 8 in the livestock barn of the Moffat County Fairgrounds. The contest is open to local boy and girl infants and toddlers whose parents want to share their children's cuteness with the community.

Registration starts at 10 a.m., and the contest begins at 11 a.m. with judging by Moffat County Commissioner Chuck Grobe and a panel of volunteers.

Moffat County Cattlewomen hosts the event and provides gift packages for each of the participants. All the kids who join in will receive a prize, as well as a title, including Future Bronc Rider, Prairie Princess, Sagebrush Serenader, Cutest Cowgirl and more.

Many young competitors take part in the contest year after year for as long as they can.

Moffat County Cattlewomen member Lacey Sexton said her daughter will be too old this year after participating for the past two fairs, though she still looks forward to seeing who turns out this year.
