If you gave your baby the correct name of Harland and your baby was born today, great job! Please submit that little Harland here for a chance to get $11,000 for college.

The unique contest had started when the fast-food chain discovered that the popularity of Colonel Harland Sanders had diminished over the years. Concerned about the Colonel’s name being forgotten, the company asked families to name their child born on Sept. 9 (the Colonel’s birthday) after the founder.
Their daughter who was born on September 9, was recently rewarded $11,000 by the chicken chain because she was named after KFC’s founder Colonel Harland David Sanders.
The food brand declared the winner of the contest via twitter sharing a Tweet with her birthdate, current weight, and height.
The company had written,
I’m as pleased as pumpkin punch to announce the winner of our Baby Harland Naming Contest and the Harland who will be ushering in an all-new generation of Harlands, little Harland Rose.
The prize money of $11,000 was chosen in the honor of the 11 herbs and spices used in KFC products.
