Local girl could be the next face of GapKids

Lynisha Geary

An ambitious Grade 3 girl from Red Deer has made it to the final 20 in Gap Canada’s casting call.

Gap Canada’s casting call will feature one boy and one girl for GapKids as well as one boy and one girl for babyGap.

In order to make it to the final four Lynisha Geary needs people to vote for her. Voting continues until May 25th and winners will be announced around the end of July.

The four final winners of the casting call will not only be featured in a Gap marketing campaign but will also receive a $1,000 Gap gift card and a $10,000 grant in their name from Gap to Communities In Schools.

Communities In Schools is a non-profit organization that provides students with a support system that encourages them to stay in school and achieve their goals in life. The 16 finalists will also receive a professional photo shoot and a $500 Gap gift card.

Geary has provided her time and efforts to raising money for the Red Cross to help with drought relief in the Horn of Africa and is described as being a free spirit with a humble heart.

Earlier in May the top 20 finalists were flown to Los Angeles where they took part in an official photo shoot featuring back-to-school looks.

Geary’s competitors are aged five to 12 and come from near and far including Texas, Ontario, British Columbia and California. She is one of only four Canadian children to have made it to the top 20.

To be eligible Geary’s parents had to enter their daughter by completing a registration, providing a photo and an answer to a short question. Parents were asked to provide 50 words or less regarding how their child brightens up the world.

Voters also have a chance to win a $500 Gap gift card just for participating and are invited to vote once a day every day until May 25.
