All parents undoubtedly think that their child is the cutest. Why not put it to the test?

Join GB Unlimited Press as they present the Brown Sugar Babies contest. The event gives parents, families, and friends the opportunity to celebrate their little angels, brag on their baby, and win prizes.

The event is open to Black children ages 0-5 in the Sacramento area. Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges at the Sacramento Black Expo on Saturday February 26, 2022.

Categories include Dimpled Darling, Brightest Smile, Coordinated Cutie, Most Pinchable Cheeks, Celebrated Siblings, and Happiest Baby. 

The Sacramento Black Expo will be held at Sacramento State University following COVID-19 safety protocols. Should the hosts of that events postpone or cancel, Brown Sugar Babies will be held virtually.

The deadline to enter has been extended to Saturday Feb. 18, 2022. Advance registration is required and is $25. There is an optional Boss Baby category (submit a photo of your baby dressed like a boss), which is $5 to enter and another chance to win.

Register online here.

You must submit a photo of your child with entry. One photo only. If entering more than one child, submit a separate form and photo for each child. Photos must be submitted to with “BSB” and the child’s name in the subject line. Your child will be entered into all categories.

Once registration is closed, family and friends can vote ($2 per vote) for the virtual “Voice of the Village” Prize. Winners will be announced at the Sacramento Black Expo on Feb. 26, 2022.

Every child will be acknowledged.
