Children invited to enter Apple Dumpling Contest

A popular contest is back again for the 37th Annual Unicoi County Apple Festival.
According to Amanda Delp, Executive Director of the Unicoi County Chamber of Commerce, children five years old and under are invited to enter the 2014 Apple Dumpling Contest. Funds raised from the competition are used to support the Chamber’s educational programs.
“The Apple Dumpling Contest is a remarkable event that spans more than two decades of tradition during the Unicoi County Apple Festival,” Delp said. “The Chamber of Commerce is proud to keep this Apple Festival tradition going.”
Contest winners will be based on the child who collects the most money, as the contest is a fundraising event, Delp said. Trophies will be awarded and a cash prize will be given to the Grand Prize winner.
Also, the photos of all registered contestants will appear in The Erwin Record prior to the Apple Festival. Contest winners will be announced during the Apple Festival on Saturday, Oct. 4, at the Gathering Place Stage located on Main Street.
According to Delp, contest registration is $10 per child. Applications may be picked up at the Chamber of Commerce office, 100 S. Main Ave., Erwin, or downloaded from the Chamber’s website at
The deadline for applications and photo submissions of the child is Friday, Sept. 19, at noon at the Chamber office. For complete contest rules, contact the Chamber at 423-743-3000.
