Just click on the links, print the form, fill it out and mail it in or give it to the Contestant. You can vote for more than 1 couple on the form, just circle the couples you are voting for and designate how much by each picture. All donations will go towards the Mercer County High School Track & Field Project. The Committee says, “VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN”!

So, let’s get this year’s event started on the right foot (hee-hee). Buy your tickets early, get your voting started NOW, and come enjoy some fantastic entertainment with your family and friends!
