Cute Pumpkin Wins Week 10 of Your Patch of Michigan Photo Contest

This cutie pie is our winner for week 10 of our summer photo contest. You can still enter week 11 through Aug. 12, 2012.

It's hard to believe we're almost in cider mill season! This cutie patootie in a pumpkin patch is the winner for week 10 of the 2012 Your Patch of Michigan contest. 

Reader Jeff Olejniczak says of his winning picture:
"This photo was taken at the Rochester Cider Mill (Rochester Hills, MI) in September 2011. It was my daughter's first trip to pick pumpkins and eat a doughnut. We ended up using this photo on her 1st birthday invitation."

Here's what our judges said:
"What speaks of fall in Michigan more than that annual trip to pick out just the right pumpkin? This little one was obviously excited by that first of what's sure to be many more trips to the pumpkin patch. And that matching hat just makes the photo all the more cute."

How can you enter the contest? Check your Michigan Patch each week this summer for a chance to win. You can 

After Labor Day, we'll pick a grand prize winner from all of the weekly winners.

The grand prize winner will receive a certificate for a two-night stay at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island (to be used before Oct. 31, 2013, and blackout dates and other restrictions may apply). The approximate retail value of the Grand Prize is $600.
