Four girls from our neck of the woods are still in the running for the grand prize in Inked Magazine's Cover Girl Contest.

Well over a hundred girls have been voted out of the competition so far, but these four girls from Maine still remain.  Round Five voting continues until this Wednesday night at midnight, and only 1 girl, the #1 from each group, will move along to the Semi-Final Round.  The #2 voted for girl in each group will also survive by moving into the Wildcard Round.

The grand prize winner of this national contest will score $25,000, and join celebrity photographer Christopher Kolk for a cover shoot.

Can you take a moment to give these girls from Maine your vote?

Kylie Bean (pictured far left), who is 23 years-old and from Enfield, is now one of five girls left in her group.  She currently places 4th in the group and really needs your vote to continue on. We contacted Kylie and asked what she would do if she won the grand prize and she told us, "If I win I want to help people who are less fortunate have a good experience getting their first tattoo that hopefully means something special to them, or something that makes them feel more confident. I love tattoos and have a full sleeve on my left arm, ribs, chest, foot and ankle."

Caprice Stevens (pictured 2nd from left), 25, from Lincoln, is currently #1 in her Group of 5 contestants. Caprice, a self-proclaimed "small-town Maine girl," says if she wins the $25,000, "I would be able to buy myself a new camera so I could pursue my dream of traveling and photographing my journey!"  Caprice was asked by the magazine if getting tattoos was addictive; "I haven't stopped since my first tattoo and have accumulated 12 so far!"

Savahna Noel Schmauderer (pictured 2nd from right), is from Machias, and is currently #1 in her Group. Savahna tells Inked Magazine that she's "an artist, who loves to draw, paint, and build cakes with fresh flowers, so naturally, my body is covered with them and just a few skulls." We contacted Savahna and she told us, "If I won, I would expand my business. I bake cakes and I�����m starting to do tattoos so something combined. I have three beautiful children and I’m a single mother so I could use all the help I could get!"

Tamara, (pictured far right) formerly of the small Washington County town of Dennysville and currently residing in Portland, is currently 2nd in her Group of 5.  Tamara tells Inked Magazine that, "My first tattoo was a memorial tattoo for my sister, Katie, who passed away at the age of 29. I have a beautiful rose with three hearts that symbolize her three children and her initials attached to the hearts. I had the tattoo done on the fifth year anniversary of her passing."  Tamara says that if she ends up being the grand prize winner that she'd donate most of the $ to three different causes, domestic violence awareness and education and animal welfare.  She'd use most of the rest of the cash for more tattoos.

Round Six, the Wildcard Round, begins this Thursday, July 18th and ends on Sunday, July 21st..  The Semi-Final Round begins on Monday, July 22nd, and ends on Wednesday, July 31st.  The Final Round begins August 1st.

Here's hoping that these Maine girls make it into the Finals!  Remember to vote!
