The day has finally arrived for drawing and revealing the top 5 prize-winners for the Snowmelt Contest in 2012. As you read late last week, we ended up with 43 people who predicted the correct date this year – which was May 30th. It was an earlier than average melt date, but it was not the earliest ever. That was in 2007 when the snow melted on May 25th. May 30th (this year) was much later than I expected and that most people predicted – so winners, pat yourself on the back. You can see the list of winners in this past blog post.
This morning on Wake-Up Wisconsin we held the random drawing to decide who would take home the big R-store gift cards. Here are the results:
- 1st Place: $250 R-Store Gift Card – Tracy Steiner
- 2nd Place: $150 R-Store Gift Card – Brittnay Adamski
- 3rd Place: $100 R-Store Gift Card – Brenda Swan
- 4th Place: $50 R-Store Gift Card – Donna Schrameyer
- 5th Place: $25 R-Store Gift Card – Adele Treml
Everyone else (38 remaining winners) wins a R-Store car wash coupon. All the prizes will be mailed out this week, so keep your eye out for some mail from WAOW-TV. A big thanks to the R-Store for providing the wonderful prizes. Also, thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s contest. I didn’t get an exact count of the entries but it was around a couple thousand which makes it one of the biggest years ever for the Snowmelt Contest. I hope everyone had fun!
Have a nice Monday! Meteorologist Justin Loew.
