MENOMONIE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Menomonie Area Chamber and Visitor Center is encouraging people to get creative out in the snow.
For the next two weeks, they will be accepting submissions for their first-ever snow sculpture competition. Participants can either build their masterpiece at home or are invited to build their sculpture at Wakanda Park. The city will be bringing in more snow from around town so there should be plenty to work with. Judging of the sculptures will take place on Facebook from February 15 through the 17.
Ashley Demuth, CEO of Menomonie Area Chamber and Visitor Center said, “Snow sculpture competitions are highly popular around the state and in our area, and we wanted to do something outdoors obviously Wisconsin is something where we embrace the snow and the ice so we wanted to bring people together to do something fun and as the area chamber visitor center we thought what a great way to bring people together and still be able to be out there in the snow and also win prizes in the meantime.”
