The Snow Sculpture Contest, which started in 2009, allows families to get in the competitive spirit while enjoying snowy weather. The snow sculpture must be made from real snow that has fallen in our region between November 1, 2017 and March 30, 2018. Those are the only requirements. Then, take a picture (include your name, the name of the sculpture you create, and your contact information) and send the picture to Paducah Parks and Recreation at 1400 HC Mathis Dr, Paducah, KY 42001 or email your picture with your information to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, pictures can be posted via social media on Facebook and Instagram. On Facebook send Paducah Parks and Recreation a message with your picture and information, and on Instagram use the tag #paducahparks in your post and say it is for the Snow Sculpture Contest. The deadline to submit the picture and contact information is March 31 at 5 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to the top 5 sculptures.
