June 18th, 2010

The second annual Vanna’s Choice contest has ended and the winners are now posted on the contest website. The entries showed extraordinary talent, skill and creativity. They also demonstrated the amazing versatility of Vanna’s Choice–that it can be used successfully to make virtually any type of garment, afghan, toy, or in the case of the grand prize winner–an entire village. They also showed how the wide range of easy-to-match colors allowed for endless possibilities of creativity in creating beautiful color combinations.

Our judges found selecting winners from among the thousands of entries extremely challenging, but the grand prize winner was a true stand-out.

The grand prize winner, Andrea Miners of Prince George, British Columbia, Canada created a miniature world in her entry entitled Fantasy Village Playmat. Her prize is a trip for 2 to Los Angeles, where she will meet Vanna White, accommodations for 2 nights for 2 people, plus $500 spending money.

We look forward to sharing the story of Andrea’s trip to meet Vanna with you in a future blog post.  Here is an image of the entire village, as well as two close-up detail images.
