In the weeks leading up to Springfield Winter Carnival, there will be a local Snowman Competition! Bundle up with your family, head outside, and work together to build the best darn snowman Springfield has ever seen! There will also be a Business Category this year, so grab your mittens and your co-workers and get creative! The winning business will receive a “Community Spirit Award” and a photo of their snowman on the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce’s website homepage. (Not to mention serious bragging rights!) A third category will feature snowmen built on site at Crown Point Country Club. Maybe incorporate some Rock ‘n’ Roll elements to impress the judges and coordinate with this year’s Cardboard Sled Contest theme. Anything goes! To enter, build a masterpiece, snap a photo and email it to email@example.com or call 802-885-2727 to have Parks and Rec Director Andy Bladyka stop by your site to view your submission. Winners will be announced by DJ Mike Brehme on Saturday evening before the Fireworks, with awards for all three categories. Get in on this new community tradition and show your Springfield Snowman pride!
