COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. (AP) - A 7-year-old girl from Overton County, Tenn., has won a Little Debbie Look-alike contest sponsored by the snack cake company.
Rhea Lynne Conner of Monroe will have her face featured on the backs of select cartons of Little Debbie snack cakes for a limited time.
Rhea, a student at A.H. Roberts Elementary School in Livingston, Tenn., won a $5,000 college scholarship, Little Debbie snacks, a Madame Alexander Little Debbie 50th Anniversary collectible doll and a $50 gift card. She was chosen from 10 finalists and more than 900 girls between 4 and 8 years old.
She would like to become a veterinarian.
