CRESTVIEW — Northwest Florida State College student Nicole White, of Crestview, has won the News Bulletin’s 2013 Pumpkin Carving Contest.

Ten judges from the News Bulletin and the Northwest Florida Daily News named her entry, “Cat and Bear,” the best of five competition finalists’ submissions.

One entry was disqualified following an investigation that revealed the pumpkin was not carved in 2013, Editor Thomas Boni wrote to judges prior to the Thursday afternoon announcement.

Nicole won a gift basket with a $20 Wal-Mart gift card, a deluxe pumpkin carving kit and assorted chocolates.

The News Bulletin’s pumpkin carving contest ran Oct. 8-30, was advertised on the newspaper’s Facebook page, and was open to all North Okaloosa County residents.
