The winners of the Heritage Days Window Display Contest for 2011 have been announced by the Huntington County Visitor & Convention Bureau. The theme for the 10th Annual Window Display Contest followed the Huntington Heritage Days 2011 theme, “Canoes, Conestogas and Cabins.”

Smith Furniture, 312 N. Jefferson Street, won first place in category A, which is the division for home décor and gift shops. The Historic Forks of the Wabash won first place in category B, which is a non-retail division, with a window lent by Vivian Barton, 323 N. Jefferson Street. The first place winning business in each category will have its name engraved on a traveling plaque to be displayed in their business until next Heritage Days.

Antiques and Ambience, 441 N. Jefferson Street, won second place in category A, and Vivian Barton, 323 N. Jefferson Street, won second place in category B.

Aaron’s Sales and Leasing, 1900 N. Jefferson Street and The Huntington County Historical Museum, with a window lent by Vivian Barton, 323 N. Jefferson Street, were awarded honorable mention.

Amy Vickery, artist and art teacher, and artist Kyle Jones, judged the windows on creativity, originality, visibility, use of color, theme and the inclusion of required contest elements based on a point system. Overall, the judges said they were impressed with the businesses’ creativity and use of artifacts in their displays.

The Window Display contest was organized by the Huntington County Visitor & Convention Bureau for Huntington’s Heritage Days celebration. Heritage Days is organized by the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce and is sponsored by TCU. The public is encouraged to view all of the windows during Heritage Days.
