Who's The Wackiest Of Them All??

Who doesn't love Ellen? Ever since she made her comeback in Finding Nemo a few years ago, she's been on a roll with her daily talk show dancing up a storm. The best thing about her show, it's fun...and there's no doubt about it. So it's fitting that our next partnership/contest/exhibition/shin dig is all about fun...because the winner is going to hang with Ellen on the Ellen Degeneres Show this September.
Drum roll please..... presenting Ellen's Wacky Chair Contest! Here's the low down,

Delaware State Fair loves kids, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware. WMDT loves the Delaware State Fair as can be seen in the constant coverage all ten days of the Fair in the Summer. Delaware State Fair and WMDT (an ABC Affiliate) decided to host Ellen's Wacky Chair Contest with the Boys and Girls Clubs of DE. DSF corralled 10 local artists to go to the ten B&G clubs to brainstorm ideas to create the wackiest chair for Ellen on her show. The Adirondack chairs were generously donated by Tyndall's Casual Furniture. The artists did their best to create the chairs for each club by incorporating all of the children's ideas.

So now we have ten ridiculously wacky chairs competing for a chance to be seen on the Ellen Degeneres Show this September. And let me tell you, they are wacky. Castles, mosquito nets, sneakers, Ferris wheels, roller coasters.... the list goes on and on. Who decides who is the wackiest? You and me and everyone! Voting has already begun and can be done here. The first vote is free, and all sub sequential votes are $1 a pop. All proceeds will go to Boys & Girls Clubs in DE (70%) and the Biggs Museum (30%). Even better, one voter will be the lucky winner of airfare, accommodations and two tickets to the Ellen Show in September...hello elay! (L.A.) The more you vote the more chances you have to win that trip, so get voting stat.

Want to see all of the chairs? Well you can click here, but the PDF doesn't do it justice. You can see all ten chairs on display at the Delaware State Fair FFA/4-H Building (aka, the Ice Centre) starting today through Saturday, August 1st. After that, all ten chairs are coming north to Dover and will be on display at the Biggs Museum through the end of August. Voting can be made at the Fair and the Museum. The winning chair will be drawn on August 28th.

May the wackiest chair win. I'm so excited! Can you tell I'm excited?
