Fire Inc. Atlanta announces results of Halloween Contest

Fire Inc. Atlanta will soon announce the results of their first big Halloween contest!

PRLog - Nov. 1, 2012 - ATLANTA -- Halloween is one of those holidays that seems to bring out the creative in everybody.  Even the most staid person can be counted on to throw a series of old clothes together in a costume or decorate their entryway with spiderwebs.

One of the more traditional Halloween crafts, Jack O’lantern carving, dates back centuries.  Coming from an old Irish folktale about a man named Stingy Jack and his battle of wits with the devil, Jack O’lanterns were originally carved out of turnips or beets.  Once the tradition found its way to the new world the larger native pumpkins were quickly embraced and to this day dot the pathways and porches of hundreds of thousands of homes throughout the English speaking world and beyond.

In the spirit of creativity, some local Atlanta businesses are getting into the Halloween spirit.  Malcolm Elavia, president of Fire Inc. Atlanta, has announced a pumpkin carving contest for all of his organization.  Each office will pick its own semi-finalists, which will then forward their entries on to the organizational head.

Entries must be of a pumpkin or member of the pumpkin family, and will be judged by the following criteria:

·      Originality

·      Ingenious use of inexpensive and recycled materials

·      Quality of the work

·      Suitability of the title

·      Quality of the work in light of the participants’ age

Some suggestions include painting the pumpkin with acrylic paint, or using glue guns or straight pins to attach decorations, along with the more traditional carving.

The winner of the contest will be announced Friday, November 2nd and they and their office will get a pizza party for their evening atmosphere and special recognition in the organization newsletter.
