Our annual snowfest just finished on the 27th of January. Snowfest is a snow carving competition of all levels from middle school to high schoolers to adults that takes place every year in Frankenmuth. Each year is different from the last because the competition depends a lot on the weather because if it’s too warm the sculptures will melt faster but if it’s too cold the sculptures might be harder to sculpt. 

Our very own Mount Pleasant high school has been a part of the competition since 2009, competing with their two teams on different levels. This year our Team A includes Rawan Alzayyat, Grace Bellinger, Sophie Cho, and Allison Lindstrom. Team B includes Jocelyne Cook, Tayla Sizemore, Raegen Sizemore, and Lizzy Prout. Preceding the actual Snowfest, each student comes up with a creative design for each of their carvings, and then Ms. Lunsford picks a few members for the upcoming teams from these submissions. It’s very easy to sign up, in fact they encourage it. Around the time when Snowfest is coming up they will make announcements over the school announcements, they prefer people with at least a little bit of knowledge on sculpting.

It was a beautiful Snowfest, they are hoping to get even more participation next year so around this time in 2025 email Ms Lunsford for information on how to join and submit a
