China’s Stormy Petrel received the National Capital Honorable Mention second prize.

Eleven teams shaved, sculpted, and smoothed snow from sunup to sundown to try to win top honours in the Winter Carnival’s Telus International Snow Sculpture contest. Creativity and likeness to the sketch submitted were the top criteria considered during the Board’s judging. Winners were announced on Sunday, February 5.
