Best Lips contest cancelled

Lynn Marion’s, of Cedar Springs, winning lips from the Best Lips Contest 2015.

We will all be left in suspense this year on who has the best lips in Cedar Springs. That’s because after 22 years of showcasing lips of all shapes and sizes, the Post is calling it quits on the “Best Lips” contest.

It wasn’t really our decision. You—the readers—made the decision for us. We are cancelling the contest because of lack of participation.

It’s been a fun 22 years, though. Publisher Lois Allen talked about the days when she used to go out and solicit people to enter—even men. And she would tell them that “so and so said they would do it if you would” and so they would do it. And then she’d get the other person to do it by telling them the same thing, too!

And who could forget the year we had the impostor lips? We published what we thought was then Cedar Springs Public School’s Finance Director Frank Verhoven’s lips—only to find out the next week when he called that he didn’t send any in—someone was impersonating him! So we did a follow up story letting people know we were taking DNA from the lips sample and sending it to the FBI. A lot of people got a laugh out of it, though I’m not sure Frank did.

It’s been a good ride, and we thank all of you who entered over the years, and those who helped us choose the best lips these last few years by voting for your favorites. Now use those lips to go give someone a great big kiss!

The voting poll has officially closed. No, not for president, for the best lips!

Voting was open to the public for The Cedar Springs Post Annual Best Lips Contest – 2013. In an effort to find the best lips anywhere, we invited the public to place their online vote at www.cedarspringspost.com. It’s just like American Idol, only with lips!

This year we posted 10 finalists and, after just five days, we had 5,702 total votes counted! The three top contenders included Leah Almy, Shelby Stremus and Diana Coughlin, all of the Cedar Springs area. It truly was a nose to nose finish with Almy garnering a total of 2,154 votes to beat out Diana Coughlin, who had 2,072. Stremus was closing in on a thousand votes with 814.

Only one entry per computer was allowed per day. Leah and the person of her choice will be treated to dinner for two at Big Boy’s and two tickets for a movie at The Kent Theatre, as well as the title for THE BEST LIPS for one full year. Congratulations Leah.

Prizes can be picked up at The Post after the 14th.
