UPDATE 7/8/22: 8 West Michigan women advance to the Top 10 in each of their groups for the Maxim Cover Girl Competition.

On June 30th, we brought you the story of a Portage mother who was doing very well in the current Maxim Cover Girl Competition.  Within minutes of publishing that article, we had a handful of people reach out to let us know there are even more local women battling it out in the same contest.  The winner of this competition gets $25,000 and gets on the cover of Maxim magazine.  Important note: One vote per person / per day is free.  However, you can buy multiple votes with the proceeds going to Homes for Wounded Warriors according to the Maxim Cover Girl website.  Each contestant below needs to make it into their group's top 5.  Each of the contestants below is currently in different groups.  Here are the Kalamazoo area women that need your votes.
