Rotary names ‘Ice Princess’; Ice Melt tickets still available

Daily News staff report
Summit Daily/Mark Fox

Summit County Rotary’s annual Ice Melt and Ice Princess Contest began Feb. 2, and locals have been guessing since then when the device will fall through the deepest part of the Dillon Reservoir. Money will be awarded to contest winners – $2,000, $750 and $500 for the top three guesses, and a first prize of $4,000 if the exact date and time is guessed. Winning guesses are often separated by only seconds, with a guess at the maximum temperature of the big day being the tie-breaker.

The contest raises about $15,000 annually for Summit High School scholarships and other Rotary contributions to the community. The Ice Princess Contest, another aspect of the event where individuals – Kaitlin Chandler, Latonya Hill, Abby Lott and Britany Root – are raising money, aims to collect $5,000 for Summit High School scholarships and other Summit County needs as well. The “Ice Princess” coronation took place Saturday at the Elks Lodge, where Hill was crowned this year’s Ice Princess.

Tickets for the Ice Melt Contest are still available – they cost $2 from local Rotarians or they can be purchased online at Multiple entries can be made on the mail-in entry form.

The Ice Melt Contest closes at midnight on April 25 or earlier if the clock drops into the reservoir before that date.
