The Nonpareil and NonpareilOnline.com are partnering on the Father Son Lookalike Contest, which is similar to the recent and very popular Mother Daughter Lookalike Contest.

To enter, go to NonpareilOnline.com or SouthwestIowaNews.com/contests and click on the contest link. On the contest site, submit a photo of the father and son (or sons) posed close together that is no more than a year or two old, and include a brief description.

There is no fee to enter, and submissions will be accepted through the end of the contest voting at 4 p.m. Monday, June 14.

Online voting will be open from midnight Monday, June 7, to 4 p.m. Monday, June 14. Be sure to recruit your friends and family to vote; they will have five votes to cast each day per e-mail address. Voting is free.

First through third places will receive prizes. In addition, the first-place father and son will be featured in an article in The Daily Nonpareil and on NonpareilOnline.com on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 20.
