Winners of Vegetable Carving Competitions

From time to time I’ve encouraged my readers to join in on the fun of participating in fruit and vegetable carving competitions. It pleased me when several days ago one of my customers sent me the following photos and news of her first competition and her first win.

Hi Nita, Just want to tell you about that I joined in vegetables sculpture competition yesterday here in our town, it’s called Winona County Fair located in Minnesota and I won the best of show and champion!

Student/Customer Places 2nd in her 1st Vegetable Carving Competition

Last year, one of my customer/students Trang Pham saw my announcement last year about the fruit and vegetable carving competition at the Ohio State Fair. She decided to give it her best shot. Not long after the competition, I received an email from Trang with the following message:

Dear Nita,

Last Tues. 7/29 we drove from Frederick, Maryland to Columbus, Ohio to attend the carving competition as a amateur.

This is my first time & I got the second place. I’m so happy & I would like to let You know. We so appreciate what You have done to give us all the information & always encourage to love carving!

Once again so thanks for your kindness .

Sincerely,
Trang Pham”
