  • Thank you for the consideration of your child's participation and don't delay because campaigning starts as soon as March 1st and ends May 1st. So you need to take this time to prepare.

  • Sincerely 

Austin L. Simar 

Battle of Byron Chairman




Children are asked to collect as many “pennies” as possible between the dates of March 1st to May 1st. Each penny collected counts as one vote. For example if someone donates $1.25 that is equivalent to 125 votes. The child that collects the most votes will be crowned the Little Mr. or Little Miss Battle of Byron. All contestants will be asked to meet at the Main Stage on the day of the Battle of Byron so that the winner can be crowned. Remember this is not a beauty contest. This is to encourage children and their families to get more involved in their community. 


By signing below, I acknowledge that I accept responsibility for my child's participation in this Battle of Byron Contest. I also agree that any and all money collected for my child's campaign will be given to The Battle of Byron. 


Please make the $25.00 Entrance Fee check payable to The Battle of Byron. Please return this form with the check or cash through the mail to P.O. Box 1564 Byron Georgia 31008.
