Santa Contest
Watch Now Button
Length: 4:08

In conjunction with the SIUC Theater Department's production of A Christmas Story, an on-stage performance of the 1983 movie, a Santa Expert letter-writing and drawing contest was conducted to find the five most expert Santa scholars in our region. Area children ages four through eight submitted handwritten letters about Santa, and then were invited to attend a Santa Expert Panel at McLeod Theater in the SIUC Communications Building. WSIU's Jak Tichenor interviewed each child about their knowledge of Santa, with five winners receiving free tickets to attend a performance of A Christmas Story at McLeod on December 12, 2008. The winners are: Trevor P. of Vergennes; Rhianna G. and Austin R. of Carbondale; Sydney C. of Murphysboro, and Amy H. of Radom.
