ICVA Pumpkin Contest 2011

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The annual Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association Pumpkin Contest has begun.

Last year’s contest had some pretty fierce competition and this year’s entries are no different. Each department entered their own pumpkin into the competition and the winner will be decided by an impartial judge. HOWEVER, online opinion is equally important, so we want to get your votes as well! Comment below on which pumpkin you think should win.

1. Sales – The obvious, yet creative “Heads in Beds” Pumpkin

2. Operations – “Operation (s)” Pumpkin

3. Marketing & Communications –  The award-winning “Sun King” Pumpkin

4.  Services/Housing Department- The “Hoo-Hoo-(Leonard) Hoops” Pumpkin

Which pumpkin has YOUR vote? Tell us below.
