COCAMS/NWA 2011 Spring Tornado Contest

Contestants were asked to predict the date of the first tornado in Oklahoma. The contest runs from March 15, until there is a tornado report in Oklahoma. There are 3 categories: county, time of day, and date. The entry with the correct or closest county will receive an Oklahoma Atlas and Gazatteer. The entry with the correct or closest time of day will receive a $15 Sonic gift card. The entry with the correct or closest date will receive a $15 7/11 gift card. Good luck to all our contestants!
