The Edgartown Board of Trade's annual Sand Sculpture Contest contestants produced many sandy creations last Wednesday, August 1, at South Beach. First-place winners in the junior division were the Rodosky children, whose design was titled "Sculpture of Martha's Vineyard." Second place went to Molly Martin for "Turtle," third place to Lauren Smith for "Sand castle with moat," and the people's choice went to the Coyle family for "Mermaid."

The first-place adult winner was Phillip Long for "Viking." Second place was the Hawkins family for "Awakening," third place to Kayla for "Sculpture of Martha's Vineyard," and the people's choice was awarded to the Hawkins family.
