The winners have been announced for contests held during the Champlain Winter Carnival during the month of February.
The virtual carnival, which ran from February 2 to 25, featured a number of activities, some outdoors and others where families were invited to participate on their own.
Among the events held during the month were a Snow Sculpture Contest, where families were asked to create their own designs. A Winter Scavenger Hunt invited township residents to find the five different Champlain Carnival wooden snowmen located in the township, and to take a selfie with their family and the snowman in each location.
The winners of the snow sculpture contest were:
- Violet Chamberlain (8 years old) and her grandfather David Chamberlain who created ShinShan the Chinese Dragon in their backyard.
- Class of Grade 6 of Saint-Jean-Baptiste Elementary School in L’Orignal.
The winners of the scavenger hunt were Catherine and Alexandre Leroux, who visited all five locations and snapped selfies to earn their prize.
