The results are in for the 36th Annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition. The winning teams were just announced at an awards ceremony at Sinnissippi Park in Rockford, Ill.

In all there were 11 state teams, 11 high school teams, and one exhibition team (the winner of last year’s Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition) that participated in this year’s event. An additional snow block will be carved by the Kilted Snow Weasels team as a special tribute to long-time snow sculptor and area educator George Harnish, who passed away in 2021.
