Come on out and play!
Due to limited amounts of snow earlier this season, we decided to alter some of the details to our popular Snowman Contest. It’s time to really get creative. We know you’re up for the challenge! We’re changing this year’s contest so that snowmen can be made out of lots of different items including bags of leaves, flower pots, wood piles and even items you might intend to throw away. The only guideline your creation must meet is that it must have a face like a snowman. The rest is up to you!
Now, if you’re really motivated, this week is a great time to make a traditional snowman. Rumor is the wet and heavy snow is perfect for making snowballs and a snowman!
Email a photo of your creation along with a short story about how you came up with your idea. Submissions are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 9. Prizes will be awarded to the best creations. Top ranked creatures will be featured on Facebook and Tahoe Donner News.
