Two toddlers from East Texas will soon see their faces in the middle of Times Square. The National Down Syndrome Society hosts an annual photo contest. Thousands of applications were entered from across the country.
Both winners from the area live in Bullard. Both 2-year-old Linkin and 3-year-old McCall will travel to New York next month to see their faces on the jumbotron.
Caught in the excitement, McCall's mother Leslie said she has no idea what photo was selected, admitting to entering more than what was asked.
"Somebody asked me the other day, 'Oh, is that the photo you posted on Facebook of McCall?' And I said, 'I really don't know.' I was supposed to enter one, and I entered like 25 or 30," she said.
Leslie said she hopes the two families travel together.
Linkin and McCall’s photos will be on display on September 16.
