Washington County babies were in strollers, wagons and even their parents arms Monday night competing for the judge's favor in the Ag Expo Baby Contest.

Ten babies competed in the non-walking category of the Baby Contest and Miniature Parade, and nine toddlers competed in the walking category, said Anna Lynne Mummert, coordinator for the last three years and one of the sponsors this year.

The children were judged on originality, workmanship of their costumes and floats and attractiveness.

Kerri Kline, 9 months, took first place in the non-walking category.

Kerri, the daughter of Dave and Diane Kline of Hagerstown, was pulled around in a wagon made up to look like a Mack tow truck so that she could be just like her parents, who own D&D Truck Repair.


Second place among the non-walkers went to Hanna Miller who was born on Jan. 8 this year.

Hanna, the daughter of Bo and Missy Miller of Hagerstown, was decked out with a tiara and fake earrings as the future Ag Expo queen.

Jacob Conner Regeny, who recently had his first birthday, took third place for the non-walkers.

The son of Michael and Veronica Regeny of Hagerstown, sat in a stroller decked out with waves, Winnie the Pooh clothing and other beach attire. His stroller was entitled "Beach Baby."

In the upright and walking portion of the contest, Devin Rosemaree Moore, 15-month-old daughter of Todd and Marleen Moore of Keedysville, took first place for her red, white and blue costume and farming motif.

Lindsey Beckley, 11/2 year-old daughter of Robert and Wendi Beckley of Fairplay, won second place, along with 10-week-old dog Daisy, playing Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf.

Third place went to Desiree Sowers, 15 months, daughter of Rachel Sowers of Smithsburg.

Desiree was pulling a wagon with two white ducks.
