We have a winner!

Congratulations to Ted White '78 for submitting the winning caption from more than 4,000 entries!

Far above Cayuga's waters, with its ice so cold,
Sits a man of solid water, jolly, bright and bold.
Lift the chorus, speed it onward, loud the season tell;
Hail to thee our Cornell snowman! Hail, all hail, Cornell!

And congratulations to our two runners-up:

Cindy Sommer '66:
Happy Holidays to you and Uris!

Tricia Turley '99:
Can you help me down? I turn into a pumpkin at midnight…

Thanks to everyone who submitted entries!
