October is the time of year when children and families artfully decorate pumpkins, and display these works for friends and neighbors. Now, your most decorative, scariest, funniest or cookiest pumpkin designs can win you one of three great prizes in the Niagara Frontier Publications pumpkin-carving contest.
One grand-prize winner will receive a prize valued at $100. One second-prize winner will receive a prize valued at $75, and one third-prize winner will receive a prize valued at $50.
To enter, send us a photo of your best carved or decorated pumpkin. Submit the photo to this email address; or follow us on Twitter (@wnypapers) and tweet a photo to us; or submit your entry via U.S. mail to Niagara Frontier Publications, 1859 Whitehaven Road, Grand Island, NY 14072.
Please include contact information (including address and phone number) with each entry. NFP will not sell or publicize addresses or phone numbers, nor use them in any other form of solicitation. Contact information is solely used to verify and contact prizewinners.
All photos will be displayed at www.wnypapers.com.
Photos of the three winners' respective entries also will be published in the NFP newspapers.
Winners will be selected based on reader feedback and the scores of NFP's judging panel. Anyone from the U.S. or Canada over the age of 18 or under the age of 18 with parental consent may enter. However, prizewinners will be selected from the pool of entrants with Western New York addresses.
The contest ends at 11:59 p.m. ET Monday, Nov. 18.
Winners will be notified on or about Tuesday, Nov. 19.
