2012’s first baby to net $900 in prizes, gifts

Rockdale’s first baby of 2012 is on the way, it’s just that nobody yet knows who he or she it.

That first baby will win $900 in prizes and gifts from 30 local merchants and organizations in the annual first baby contest.

Here’s how it works. The contest is open to parents who live in Rockdale or have a Rockdale address.

When the baby is born, they should notify The Reporter, 512- 446-5838, at the first possible moment and have the doctor write down the baby’s exact time and date of birth, along with the baby’s name, sex, weight and name and address of parents.

Prizes will then be claimed with a letter of introduction from The Reporter.
