Our Model Search Winners

Volume 22 • Number 5 PUBLISHER

We had online entries and voting for our elementary-age models, and the winners appear in this issue of Today's Family.

Top from left, Mercedes Carter and isabela Wilmes. Below from left, Jack Tisdale and Sophia Bowen.

Isabela Wilmes, 5, loves to joke around, says mother Niki Rodriguez. You might hear her singing a song of silly lyrics she created herself, or she might be unleashing all of her energy on the soccer field. She is attending Lincoln Elementary Performing Arts Magnet School for kindergarten. This winner appears on page 14.

Mercedes Carter is an expert with making funny faces on demand and gave us many during this photo shoot. The 5-yearold is a huge American Doll fan who enjoys swimming, riding her scooter, and playing with her little sister.

Sophia Bowen, 8, and her dog Nacho are the picture-perfect pair. She loves cuddling with him and is involved in dance classes, gymnastics, and runs cross country at Dunn Elementary.

Jack Tisdale, 5, starts school at Floyds Knobs Elementary this year and fills his free time with superheroes and swimming. These three winners appear on the cover and on pages 8 and 9.
