Layton City Parks Snowman Contest
Layton City Parks
Layton City Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a contest to find the best snowman builders in the City. The Parks and Recreation Department is looking for the largest, most colorful, and most creative snowmen. Pictures of the snowman and the person/persons responsible could be used in advertisements and other promotional work for the City.
To be eligible for the first 3 prizes the snowman must be constructed in one of our City Parks. To enter you simply build the snowman, take a picture of the snowman with at least one of the builders standing beside it. Then turn it in to the Parks and Recreation office with an entry form.
Submissions will be judged on the following criteria:
- Largest Snowman
This category is for the largest snowman created in a City Park. We will be looking for the tallest, widest, most robust snowman.
Grand prize: $50.00
- Most Colorful Snowman
In this category our esteemed judges will be looking for the most colorful or most creative use of color on a snowman created in a City Park. All color sprayed on the snowmen must be food color, no paint!
- Most Creative Snowmen
Create your favorite cartoon caricature, animal, or structure created in a City Park.
- Best Residential Snowmen
If you can’t come out to play in one of our parks create a snowman in your own yard. This one is completely up to our judges.
This competition is open to all Layton City residents or groups or individuals who want to come and build in one of our parks. Snowman builders may pick up an entry form at the Parks and Recreation office located at 465 North Wasatch Drive, Layton, Utah 84041, or by clicking on the entry form at the bottom of this article.
All entries must be turned into the Parks and Recreation office by 4:30 pm March 16, 2009.
