Shelby Young proudly displays the first Stephenville Winter Carnival button bearing her name. The button was presented to her on Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014 when she was named this year's slogan contest winner.
STEPHENVILLE — Shelby Young will participate as a cheerleader for her school, Stephenville Elementary, during the opening ceremony for this year’s Stephenville Winter Carnival.
In addition to that, the Grade 5 student in Beverley Bishop’s class was recently named winner of the 38th Annual Stephenville Winter Carnival slogan contest.
As this year’s winner, Young was presented with the first button and the only one printed that bears her name, along with a cheque for $50, which really brought a smile to her face.
It also features her slogan, “Winter is Fun, Winter is Cold, so Come to the Carnival, Young and Old.”
Young said the slogan was something she came up with and it fell in line because it rhymed.
She’s now looking forward to participating in the opening ceremony once again, where she will be further recognized for her winning entry. Young is also hoping to participate in as many events as she can.
Stephenville Winter Carnival is set for Feb. 13-17. Buttons and calendar events booklets will be available soon.
