'Citizen' to host Halloween costume contest
BY DENNY SCOTT
With suggestions coming down from the provincial government and Huron Perth Public Health to look for different ways to celebrate Halloween, The Citizen wants to make sure all those cute, fun and adventurous costumes still get seen this year.
To that end, the staff at The Citizen are donning their black robes, white wigs and mallets and becoming judges for a Halloween contest that will stretch throughout Huron County. The Citizen is inviting everyone from its coverage area to submit a picture of themselves in their Halloween costume for a chance to win a spooky prize and be featured in a special photo display in the Oct. 29 issue of The Citizen and on The Citizen’s website.
A grand prize will be awarded to the winner in each of four categories: Under 12 years of age, 12 years old to 18 years old, 19 or older and a special pet category.
So don your cutest, spookiest or scariest duds and aim for the top prize.
Photos must be submitted digitally to firstname.lastname@example.org or through The Citizen’s Facebook page or mailed to Box 429, Blyth, Ontario. All entries must be received by Oct. 23 to be eligible for prizes. The winners will be announced in the Oct. 29 issue of The Citizen, alongside the big reveal for the spooky grand prizes. Runners-up and other contestants may be featured in the issue as well.
