1st Annual Pumpkin Carving/Decorating Contest Winners


My County Link holds its 1st Annual Pumpkin Carving/Decorating Contest. The Decorated Pumpkins helped to add to Main Street Greenville’s Fall Activities.

Congratulations to our winners!

1st Place – $50 – Olivia Kauffman

2nd Place – $35 – Cora Haddix

3rd Place – $15 – Foster Cole

Olivia carved and painted her pumpkin based on the Disney Movie Encanto. She worked on hers in the evening, watching movies, and spent several hours creating a 360-degree painting and carving where she had a battery candle inside that lit hers up. She shared that nine years ago, she won a Pumpkin Contest where she painted after the Disney Movie Frozen. She is an artist who does her own freelance work and enjoys it as a hobby. 

Cora, a 2nd grader, worked one evening a few hours after school to prepare her pumpkin. She created her design using construction paper, cereal, and a straw hat.

Foster was unavailable for the picture. His was painted.
