Indiana's NewsCenter and YouNews™ put the word out: upload your best Halloween photos and videos during the month of October for a chance to win! Entries needed to fit into one of four categories: Scariest Costume, Best Pet Costume, Best Kid's Costume and Best Halloween Decorations.
YouNews editors sifted through thousands of fabulous and creative submissions from over 80 affiliate stations nationwide, finally narrowing the selection down to a cute little RO-BAT on IndianasNewsCenter.com. As the winner in the "Best Kid's Costume" category, Tracey McEntee received a Canon PowerShot Digital Camera in a pumpkin-perfect shade of orange.
Halloween Hijinks winning submissions were also selected from YouNews affiliate stations in Lewiston, ID (KLEW – Best Decorations) and San Diego, CA (Scariest Costume).
IndianasNewsCenter.com visitors are invited to upload content to YouNews at any time, where there are categories for news, sports, weather, events and pets/animals. Videos and photos are reviewed by station staff and may be chosen for use during newscasts, promos or elsewhere on the air.
