ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – Artists participating in the St. Paul Winter Carnival’s snow sculpture and ice-carving competitions didn’t have to worry about a shortage of materials this year.

The winners were announced over the weekend.

In first place among the ice carvers was a piece called “Fishing to Win,” created by Tom Schiller from Hastings, Rob Graham from Minneapolis and Trevor Pearson from Eden Prairie. They split a $2,000 prize.

Second place and $1,000 went to a piece called “Aerial Aquatics,” and third place and $500 went to “Dream Chaser.”

Among the snow sculpture contestants, the judges selected Sculptors in Sync for their creation entitled “It’s Bee-ginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.” They were awarded $1,000 and the chance to represent Minnesota in the National Snow Sculpting Competition in Lake Geneva, Wis.

Second place went to the Snow Cowboys’ “Knight in the Garden,” and third went to Team Dino Fight’s “Mobius Fish.”
