Can you believe it is time once again for the First Snowfall Contest? It is that time of year when snow-lovers anxiously await the crystal flakes (and a lot of other people groan). What makes the first snow more interesting is when you can win great prizes for guessing when the first inch will fall.

If you have not entered the First Snowfall Contest in the past, maybe this is the year to give it a try. It is simple. All you have to do is predict when the first full inch of snow falls. The official measurement is conducted in Wausau by the Stormtrack9 weather team. Most of the time it falls in November, but sometimes it falls as early as October or as late as December.

Here are the winning dates from past years:

2011: November 9th

2012: November 24th

2013: November 20th

2014: October 31st

2017: November 1st
