Thanksgiving is approaching, so it’s time to haul out the paint, crayons, pens, ink, beads, feathers, glitter, sequins and glue to dress this bird.
Four bird creators will win $100 each, and many more will see their birds on Cincinnati.com and in The Enquirer on Thanksgiving Day.
The first part of the contest is for best overall bird (chosen by judges from the Enquirer and Cincinnati.com newsroom). The winner will receive $100.
The second part is an online contest in which Cincinnati.com users will vote for a top bird in three age categories: 12 and under, 13-20 and 21 and up. We’ll pick five finalists in each age category and let you vote for your favorite online. The top vote getter in each category wins $100 cash. To vote, search Turkey.
Here are the all-important deadlines:
• To be eligible for the online contest, your dressed bird must be postmarked by Nov. 3, or at The Enquirer by 9 a.m. Nov. 5.
• To be eligible for the best overall bird, your bird must be in our hands (mail or hand delivery) by 5 p.m. Nov. 12.
Voting for the online contest will run Nov. 12 until the morning of Nov. 19.
Then, on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, The Enquirer will print the top bird, the three online winners and many more of our favorites.
We can’t wait to see what you’ve got for us this year.
