Sounds Good Wreath Contest Winners

Nov 20, 2012

Murray State’s NPR station, 91.3 WKMS-FM, has announced winners of its holiday wreath making contest. Wreaths are on display in Murray State’s Waterfield Library through the end of November and then most go to Murray Calloway County Hospital to decorate for the holiday season. Images of all wreaths are also on the WKMS Facebook page.

Sara Falder of Petals & Pots Flowers & Home Décor in Mayfield provided cash prizes and gift certificates.  The 1st place $150 prize went to Tammie Sanders of Princeton for her large wreath “Winter Star.”  Katherine Hillern’s marshmallow wreath “S'more Christmas” earned her the 2nd place $100 prize. The 3rd place $50 winner is Lindsey Lawrence of Murray with “Super Christmas.”

Five additional finalists receiving $20 gift certificates from Petals & Pots include: Jenny Clark of Almo, Sarah Grimsley of Murray, Gerry Harris of Murray, Ali Vernier of Murray, and Gale Weaver of Kevil.

There were sixteen entries submitted for judging on Saturday, November 17 at MSU’s Waterfield Library. Laura Dziekonski, Sara Falder, and Debi Danielson served as judges for this 1st Ever WKMS Sounds Good Wreath Contest. The contest required that wreaths be hand-made by the person submitting the entry, ready to hang, and be an original design incorporating some natural materials. 

Another holiday project of WKMS is its annual series of splendid music and storytelling Company for the Holiday.  The series begins on Thursday, November 22, Thanksgiving Day, and continues through New Year’s Day 2013.  See the complete schedule online, above, or request a schedule at 800-599-4737.  Contributing members receive schedules as a thank you for their support.
