Healthy Baby Contest features Molokai’s cutest residents.
By Léo Azambuja
Look who’s walking! An improvised runway at Mitchell Pauole Center served the stage for a different kind of parade, with babies taking over the cat-walk – some were even brave enough to send kisses to the public present at the 4th Annual Community Health Fair.
The Healthy Baby Contest featured 13 of Molokai’s cutest babies. Any one of them could have gone home the contest winner, so the three-judge panel had a rough time choosing the day’s champ.
Contest MC Rhonda Negrillo said that in order to become a participant the keiki have to be able to walk, and be less than two-years-old on the day of the event.
In the end, Kuakea Adolpho brought home a first place trophy that was taller than him, making Vesta Adolpho the proudest mom of the day.
Mathew McGuire took second place, and Aaliyah-Joy Sibayan took third. However, every participant was a winner, endearing everyone’s hearts.
Mahalo to Sarah Kawa`a, Dr. Elvin Vales and Judy Igusa for doing such a tough job judging the contest. Special mahalo to Na Pu`uwai and Meadow Gold Dairies for organizing and sponsoring the contest.
