The contest is open to all residents of Potsdam and surrounding communities. What do you need to do? “ Between now and February 28 you need to build a snowman and incorporate a "heart" into its design,” explained Executive Director Marylee Ballou. “ Then take a photo (jpeg format preferred) of your creation and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone, town name, and email information.” The snowman can be created by an individual, duo, group or family. “We will post all entries in an album on our Facebook page and the photo that receives the most "likes" by March 14 will be named the winner,” Ms. Ballou added. Everyone is encouraged to view the photos and participate in the voting, by liking their favorite snowman photo between March 1-14. The winner will receive a $25 Potsdam Chamber Gift Certificate.
