A prediction of 131.5 inches wins Second Annual Snowfall contest

According to the Keweenaw Research Center snowfall records a total of 132in was recorded this season.

Of the 944 entries ranging from a low of 73.8 inches to a high of 400 in the Second Annual Snowfall contest, Scott Yager, a 2010 Electrical Engineering Tech alumnus was the closest without going over with his prediction of 131.5 inches.

By coming with a half inch of the  total amount of snow to fall in the Keweenaw during the 2011-12 season, Scott wins the Grand Prize which includes two nights at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge and a Michigan Tech Winter Survival Kit (Tech Hoodie, Gloves, Hat, Scarf, Blanket, and Snowbrush).

Brian Baldwin, a 1989 Computer Science alumnus, was chosen from all entries to also win a Michigan Tech Winter Survival Kit as the Consolation Prize.

Thank you to all of you who entered the contest. Stay tuned for the Third Annual Snowfall Contest for the 2012-13 season which will kick off in November!
