Signing Star Winners Announced

Fifty Lakes, Minnesota – November 4, 2010 – The three winners of KLKS radio’s Be A Signing Star contest were announced by Mark Johnson of the Fifty Lakes Property Owners Association on Thursday. They are Bob Scharenbroich, Pequot Lakes; Carol Jansen, McGregor; and David Bear, Lawton, Oklahoma. "Each was awarded a prize of $100 and the honor of being an unofficial poet laureate of Fifty Lakes, Minnesota," said Johnson.

The contest idea appeared in a grant submitted to the Minnesota DNR by the Fifty Lakes Property Owners Association. The contest was intended to solicit slogans that would alert citizens to the spread of invasive aquatic species among regional lakes. “By some miracle we won a matching grant,” said Johnson, “and to come up with the slogans, we thought it would be fun to have a radio contest.”

The slogans had to conform to the style of the Burma Shave ads familiar to most Americans over 60.

The winning entries were:

Pull Your Plug
To Drain Your Boat
Inspect It. Dry It.
Then Re-Float
--Bob Scharenbroich

Drain Your Boat
Stop the Spread
Invasive Species
Knock “Em Dead!
--David Bear

10,000 Lakes
Each A Beauty
Clean Your Boat
Do Your Duty!
--Carol Jansen
