COLLEGEDALE, TENN. — McKee Foods Corp. is holding the "Little Debbie Look-a-Like Contest," a promotion in which individuals are asked to submit photos of female look-a-likes between the ages of 4 and 8.
The contest, which runs through Jan. 20, is part of McKee Foods’ 50th anniversary celebration in 2010. Little Debbie, whose picture is often featured on products, was a real little girl and the granddaughter of O.D. and Ruth McKee, the founders of McKee Foods. Little Debbie, now Debbie McKee-Fowler, is an executive with McKee Foods.
To participate in the contest interested parties should submit a jpg photo at www.littledebbie.com. Fifty semi-finalists will be chosen, and Ms. McKee-Fowler will help select 10 finalists, who will receive an invitation to attend the Little Debbie 50th Anniversary Event in Atlanta in February, where the winner will be chosen.
A $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to the grand prize winner, and the winning child’s picture will appear on certain packages of Little Debbie products.
