Thank you to everyone who participated in our turkey decorating contest this year. We had so many fun, fantastic, creative entries. And thank you to our community judges. It’s so hard to pick a favorite, isn’t it? Awards were given based on community voting. This year we didn’t have time for an Artists’ Choice award, but we do have ribbons for first, second, and third in the popular vote.
We would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to the good folks at the Linn County Cultural Coalition whose grant made this contest possible. Thanks also to Michael Howland of Genesis 3D for taking the time to make all of the turkey forms.
Here are our winners:
We look forward to seeing your turkeys next year! Until then, happy creating!
If you have a turkey in the show, you are encouraged to pick it up this week. Thank you.
The turkeys are in the building! Come on down and admire the creativity. Vote for your favorite!
Please join us for our 2nd annual Turkey Decorating Show and Contest. We have turkeys available at the Gifts and Gallery store located at 605 Main Street in downtown Lebanon. The turkeys are a nominal $1. (Most of the cost was covered through a grant from the Linn County Cultural Coalition.) The Turkeys are printed on one side and come with stands. We encouraged you to decorate both sides, but it’s not required. The contest is open to all ages. We will have a people’s choice award, so bring your friends and family down to vote. We will also have an artists’ choice award. At the end of the contest you can take your turkey home, just in time for Thanksgiving! If you have any questions, give us a call at 541-497-0386.
