San Diego's 'Star Babies' Contest Awards $1,000 To Winning Babies


Starting March 15, San Diego babies (0-12 months) and (12-24 months) can enter their photo for the chance to win $1,000. There will be a $1,000 winner in each age group. Each year since 2010, thousands of babies (and their parents) have competed in the Star 94.1 FM Star Baby contest.

While entries are still being accepted through April 9, 2021, voting has begun in the first phase of the contest. Entries can now be viewed and voted on!

We love seeing the faces of San Diego's youngest residents each year during this annual contest. The photos of all babies who meet the contest requirements will be included in the first round of online voting, which runs March 29 - April 15, 2021. The fifty babies (in each age group) whose photo entries receive the most votes, will be included in the second round of voting, which runs April 19 - May 2, 2021. 

At the completion of second round of voting, the five entries (in each age group) that received the most votes will be judged by individuals appointed by the station and sponsor. Each judge will assign a score for each baby’s: expression, the theme/setting of the photo and the quality of photo (lighting and clarity of image). The entry that receives the highest score will be declared the winner.
