It is requested that you submit the city of the snowman's location, creator (s) name and age(s), contact phone number, and the date of creation to the Chuck Mathena Center. You may email  or mail entries to:  Chuck Mathena Center, 2 Stafford Commons, Princeton, WV 24701.

The Chuck Mathena Center will judge entries for two grand prizes to be given away. The winners will be selected from two categories, The Best Business Snowman and The Best Backyard Snowman.

Grand prize winners will receive 4 Premium Tickets to the National Symphony Orchestra on Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 3 pm.
