With more than 80 entries, 350 voters and 10,000 votes cast, the Mother-Daughter Look-a-Like Contest was the most popular online contest The Nonpareil has ever seen.
Yet it came down to the final days to determine the winners, both of whom came from Council Bluffs.
First place, as determined by the highest number of public votes, belonged to Sheina Hammers. She will receive a $200 gift card to Ambition Salon from Marcia Mescher and $200 in cosmetics from Margaret Freeman.
Angela Hanson, who finished within a percentage point of Hammers, earned second place for a photo of her and her mother. For that, she earned a mother-daughter cameo necklace from Steven's Jewelers, valued at $300.
Thank you to all the participants in this year's contest, and this contest will almost certainly run at the same time next year.
