Spring Snapshot Winner Announced!

Local Snapshots category bannerAnd the Spring Snapshot Contest winner is….

hardy5 680Congrats to Stephanie Hardy who shared this fun, beautiful photo with us during the Spring Snapshot Contest. Doesn’t this make you want to eat ice cream with your friends?

Stephanie said she snapped this picture while she and the kids were in downtown Bentonville. Her three girls had just finished a great week of school, so they decided to celebrate with ice cream from the Walmart Soda Fountain (on the corner of the Bentonville Square). Madelyn, age 8, loves an ice cream flavor called “Spark.” Emily, age 5, loves chocolate ice cream, and Brylee, age 9, says cookie dough ice cream is her favorite in the whole world. The joy in this sweet photo definitely shines through.

Stephanie has won a 16×20 gallery-wrapped canvas print of her favorite family photo from Scott Frame & Art.

Thank you to ALL the local mamas who shared their beautiful kids with us during the spring contest. Our judges said it was very tough to pick a favorite. We hope you’ll keep the pictures coming by entering the Summer Snapshot Contest, which starts today! (Monday, June 20, 2016 is the first official day of summer! Woo-hooo!) The Summer Snapshot Contest will run from today through the end of August. Send up to 5 photos per month to gwen@nwaMotherlode.com, and we’ll feature as many of them as possible here in our “Local Snapshots” category.

We’ll announce the Grand Prize winner at the end of August.
