Monday morning, in Holiday fashion, the Osage County Assessor's Office held an Ugly Sweater Contest. The entire Assessor's office took place in the contest but several stood out from the rest.
Participants included, Osage County Assessor Gail Hedgecoth, Kay Wilson, Rebecca Soutter, Laurie Lasarge, Denise Stanford, Jimmi Letzkus, Bill Caughman, Wendy Brown, Donna Kastning, Lisa Traylor, and Natasha Yancey.
The prizes for the contest came in the way of bragging rights as well as small holiday decorations which could feasibly be added to the contestants wardrobes. However, there had to be a winner and after much deliberation the judges presented the Top 4, in the Ugly Sweater Contest.
Fourth Place: Bill Caughman
Third Place: Jimmi Letzkus
Second Place: Rebecca Soutter
First Place: Gail Hedgecoth
Gail Hedgecoth, was chosen for first place however, the judges did not feel it would be fair to award the Assessor a prize.
