They say no two snowflakes are alike and when you smush them all together you get one creative and unique snowman! Join the winter tradition of building a snowman for fun. Enter the “Do You Want to Build a Snowman Contest” hosted by pHLuid13 on Frosty Island.

Teleport to Frosty Island where the contest will be held. Members are dropping their PAZes in a row. Once you’ve scouted your location, you’ll need to drop a Quarter-Acre PAZ to participate. You can purchase one from Shop Central.

Next, you will need to acquire the parts to build your snowman. Start with the Build a Snowman Body and then choose one of the different snowman heads to top it off! There are also snowman accessories like scarves and arms available.

You can get as creative with your snowman build as you like, but are limited to the 20 drops available with a Quarter-Acre PAZ.

The contest will allow for two special winners! A 37,000T prize will be awarded to the best dressed snowman and the PAZ that tells the best story.

The contest is going on now and will end at 11:59 PM PST on December 13th. Voting for the best dressed snowman and best story will take place on the 14th.

Read the official rules and get crackin’ on your snowman!

Here’s a peak of the entries so far. Use your imagination and come up with something really creative!
