Snow & Ice Competition 2022

Introduction

As a wise person once said: “If you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of snow.”

So: to help us find joy in snow and ice this continuing COVID winter of 2022, and to strengthen community, we’re holding an all ages Regional Council Snow and Ice Art competition. This is your chance to dust off your creativity and your communal spirit (and your good mittens). Dream up some plans for freezing art or magnificent snow sculptures or humble castles, and gather your team.

Our theme: Love Our Neighbours.
Our timing: mid January to late February.
Who: everyone! Kids and elders especially welcome.
