Another event that took place throughout the week was our Ice Sculpture Challenge. Tenants and staff teamed up to make their best sculpture but instead of using ice…we used marshmallows. The submissions were due on Tuesday and then everyone who wanted to vote for their favorite could do so until Friday. The winner of the Ice Sculpture Challenge was Eagan Pointe’s very own, Jake Crandall, of the Maintenance department. He also received a prize at the Coronation Ball.
