"We had a great response from our players with this contest, and we had a lot of fun judging the costumes," said Julie Beck, managing Web editor for the Lottery. "We saw everything from ’The Sesame Street Gang’ to the ’Boogie Man;’ it was really tough to decide on just six winners. Our players really have a lot of creativity and talent!"
The winners were:
Kay Schutte, De Soto--Fruit of the Loom Gang;
Bill Bigheart, Miami, Okla.--Sexy Shirley;
Ryan Barker, Kansas City--The Superfriends;
Tonia Helton, Poplar Bluff--Lucky Lottery Lady;
James Daher, St. Louis--The Boogie Man;
Kay Currier, St. Joseph--The Sesame Street Gang.
