Is it cute? Is it ugly? Judges puzzle over this year’s Teen’s ugly sweater contest!
Nina Jorgenson was declared the winner of the San Benito County Free Library’s first-ever Ugly Holiday Sweater Design Competition on Friday, December 16, 2016! Using tinsel garlands, ribbons, pom poms, and other assorted holiday decorations provided by the library, contestants munched on pizza while creating the ugliest holiday sweater possible. Nina won a gift card and a nifty holiday hat for her creation above.
