LUMBERTON — Get those costumes ready because the The Robesonian’s Halloween Contest begins in just one week.
The newspaper is offering $150 to the best Halloween costume in Robeson County. The contest will have four additional costume winners — the scariest, the funniest, the cutest and the most original — whose creators will each receive a $50 cash prize.
The winners of each category are chosen by online votes. Submissions will be accepted beginning Oct. 20, voting begins on Nov. 3 and continues until Nov. 9. Winners will be notified by email on Nov. 10 and announced in the newspaper the following week.
To enter, visit www.robesonian.com and fill out the online registration form with contact information that the newspaper will need should you win. If you have entered any past contest sponsored by The Robesonian, your user name and password are still valid. Then attach the photo to the appropriate category.
Once you have submitted the photo, show it off to your friends and family and get them to vote early and often.
The sponsors for the contest are Better Choice Insurance, which will sponsor the prize for the overall winner; Clayton Homes, which will sponsor the most original category, Ferrell Gas, which will sponsor the cutest category; Elite Cellular, which will sponsor the scariest category; and Dowless Catering, which will sponsor the funniest category.
