Pop goes the turkey for this year's contest

Grab your art supplies and Teen Magazine because this year, the Herald- Leader's annual Dress the Turkey Contest is all about teen pop sensations. Think Britney Spears, Hannah Montana, the Jonas Brothers, Cheetah Girls or Rihanna. Or maybe Rudy Vallee, Elvis Presley or one of the New Kids on the Block is more to your liking.

For the contest, transform our turkey into a star. The best turkey in the children's category, for ages 12 and younger, will get a small prize, as will the best creation in the adult category, ages 13 and older.

You must use this turkey as the basis for your creation, but there are no restrictions on materials or colors. Enlarged photocopies are acceptable, but anything larger than 8 inches by 10 inches will not be published. A PDF of this turkey is available at

Mail your turkey to: Turkeys, Features Department, Lexington Herald-Leader, 100 Midland Avenue, Lexington, Ky. 40508.

Or you can drop off your turkey at the Herald-Leader's front desk from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. E-mailed and faxed entries will not be accepted. Include your name, age, address and a daytime phone number.

All entries must be received by noon Thursday, Nov. 6.

The most eye-catching turkeys will appear in Communities on Nov. 26.
