Milkybar® Kid Top Ten – It’s Time to Vote!

MEDIA RELEASE EMBARGOED UNTIL 1 NOVEMBER 2010

Milkybar® Kid Top Ten – It’s Time to Vote!

The search is almost over for one of New Zealand’s most well-known young adventurers – the MILKYBAR Kid – as all Top Ten Finalists are revealed and public voting opens today (1 November 2010).

The public has seen all the Finalists on Good Morning, in magazines, and on the MILKYBAR website, and can now vote at www.milkybar.co.nz for the Finalist they think would be the best New Zealand MILKYBAR Kid. Voting closes at midnight on Friday 12 November, after which a panel of judges will pick the ultimate winner, who will be revealed on Friday 19 November 2010.

Since 9 August 2010, parents and guardians have been filming audition videos of their children using a script from the MILKYBAR website and uploading the footage for their chance to fill the iconic boots of this much-loved character. Public auditions were also held at branches of The Warehouse, New World and Pak n Save nationwide.

59 children were then shortlisted from the approximately 1500 entries received (48 from online entries and 11 from in-store auditions), and following casting calls in Auckland and Wellington, the Top Ten Finalists were selected.

They are: Dominic Burrows (8) of Invercargill, Asher Quin (9) of Dunedin, Sam Kirby (7) of Christchurch, Natalie Olson (8) of Wellington, Hinetaapora Short (8) of Rotorua, Madison Hunter (8) of Auckland, Astaria Te Aukura (7) of Auckland, Benjamin Clark (7) of Auckland, Eloise Greenwood (9) of Auckland, and Samyah Powell (9) of Whangarei.

The chosen child will star in the new MILKYBAR television commercial in 2011, and enter the hearts (and lounges) of Kiwis as part of one of New Zealand’s most iconic television campaigns. The search was for a child between 7 and 10 years old that possesses a certain star quality.
