The random snow sculptures are all to raise awareness about the 3rd Annual Community Snow Sculpting Contest. Individuals, families, businesses, and area organizations are invited to have some fun outdoors building a snow sculpture. Snap a photo of your sculpture and submit it for a chance to win some cool prizes from the Rockford Park District.

The Community Snow Sculpting Contest is presented by the Rockford Park District, Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition, and WIFR 23.
