Default This kid and her mother should have something horrible happen to them.

I'd say DIAF or something like that, but I don't feel very specific tonight.

By ELIZABETH LANGTON / The Dallas Morning News

A 6-year-old Garland girl won a Hannah Montana makeover and concert tickets Friday with an essay that started, "My daddy died this year in Iraq ..."

But the girl's mother now admits that the essay, along with information she supplied about the supposedly deceased soldier, is false, said Robyn Caulfield, a spokeswoman for Club Libby Lu.

Club Libby Lu, a store aimed at "tween" girls that sells pink and purple merchandise and gives princess makeovers, sponsored the Hannah Montana Rock Your Holidays Essay Contest. First prize was the trip to see Miley Cyrus in concert as Hannah Montana, the fictional rock star from the Disney television show of the same name.

Club Libby Lu still plans to honor the girl's prize – airfare for four to Albany, N.Y., and four tickets to the sold-out Jan. 9 Hannah Montana concert there.

"We told a 6-year-old today that she was going to see Hannah Montana, and we're not going to renege on that," Ms. Caulfield said.

Who initiated the lie is unclear.

The girl's mother, Priscilla Ceballos, refused to answer questions Friday at the store. She did not return repeated phone messages left later in the day.

Company officials notified Ms. Ceballos that her daughter won the contest and arranged to surprise the girl Friday at the Club Libby Lu in Garland's Firewheel Town Center.

Store employees treated the girl to the makeover, complete with blond wig, and danced with her as television cameras recorded the scene.

Officials took the essay, which included no details about the father or his death, at face value and performed no background checks, Ms. Caulfield said. Ms. Ceballos told company officials that the girl's father, Army Sgt. Jonathon Menjivar, had died in a roadside bombing April 17 in Iraq, Ms. Caulfield said.

But Department of Defense records show that no one by the name Jonathon Menjivar has died in Iraq.

Ms. Caulfield said she was unable to release further details late Friday.

Here is the contest-winning essay, purportedly written by a 6-year-old Garland girl:

"My daddy died this year in Iraq. I am going to give mommy the Angel pendant that daddy put on mommy when she was having me. I had it in my jewelry box since that day. I love my mommy."

That is entirely shameless and disgusting.

Maybe I will go to the show with a big sign just to make her feel terrible.

The best that can come out of this shameless insult is for all the children who really have lost parents to war gather together in front of her house with signs saying: My father really did die this year in Iraq.

Make that bitch-trash mama wish she'd never tried to use what little brain she has.

They should bring the mother and child up on stage. Announce who they are, and that they won because of the essay.

They should then read the essay.

Then should then announce that it was a lie, and that the child and mother are thieving lying cheats who fail at life.

Then upload it to you-tube.

Eh, I bet the situation is more complicated than the article makes it appear to be. My bet is the mom wrote the essay...otherwise how did the girl come up with the name and the story about the roadside bomb? That's not something a 6 year old would come up with. You can't blame a 6 year old for not understanding how that would be offensive...her mom is a ****ing wack job though. Probably just wanted to do something nice for her daughter that she herself couldn't afford. WAPCE.

I just saw this on CNN. The mother looks like a total piece of trash with a ton of makeup and drawn on eyebrows. Her only comment to the cameraman was "I dont need...I dont need..." and walked off.

i would imagina that the kid wrote an essay, but her Mom sent in a different one. I can see the Mom wanting something nice for her kid, but thats a really bad way to go about it. I think the Mom is slightly retarded or something, because she walked in there like it was all good. Something doesnt wash here.

My daddy died for my freedom and that of all the teen girls in Iraq, to get free makeovers.

He is my hero.

I know some of you are just being asses to be asses, but this is truly disgraceful.

The mother needs to be shamed and the kid needs to watch so they both learn their lessons. It's not too late for the kid, not yet.

That's what the uproar is about.

Kids are never too young to start to learn what is right and what is wrong.

Forty words constitutes an "essay" now? That's the real tragedy.
