Are you part of a cute couple? Sure you are and the Southern Standard wants to see your picture.
The newspaper is conducting a Cutest Couple Contest just in time for Valentine's Day. The winning couple will receive a Valentine's Day prize package that will hopefully make what's recognized as the national day of romance even more enjoyable.
The contest is simple. All it takes is for you to upload a picture of yourself with your girlfriend/ boyfriend/ wife/ husband to our website. Photos can be uploaded beginning Monday and the contest will last until Feb. 9.
Website visitors are encouraged to peruse the pictures and vote for the couple they think is the cutest. There are no other guidelines. The winning couple will get a Valentine's Day prize package to make the big day more special.
"We are always looking for neat promotions that allow us to spotlight members of the community," said Standard publisher Patricia Zechman. "People enjoy posting pictures on Facebook so we're hoping they will enjoy posting pictures on our website for this Valentine's Day campaign."
Valentine's Day may not seem like a big deal to some, but it's estimated to be an $18 billion holiday with the average person spending $130. Flowers, cards and candy are always popular gifts.
