Enter the online Jack-O-Lantern contest

Win a $50 gift certificate

If you’ve got the knife skills of Michael Myers and the charismatic “Pumpkin King” mentality of Jack Skellington, enter to win our Jack-O-Lantern contest. It’s scarily simple: buy a pumpkin, rearrange its face, take a photo and shoot us an e-mail to submissions@delmartimes.net. We’ll upload the photo to our Web sites (www.delmartimes.net and www.carmelvalleyleader.com), the public will vote for its favorite and the winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Cupcake Love in Solana Beach. Pumpkin guts have never been so fun!
