HAMMOND | The South Shore Convention & Visitors Authority has announced the winners from the 2013 Write a Theme contest.

The contest is held annually in conjunction with the “A Christmas Story” Comes Home exhibit, and pays homage to Ralphie’s theme requesting a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas.

Kenlei Glotzbach, of Belleville, Ill., won the 9 and under age category. She wrote that she wanted dance and tumbling classes for Christmas.

Winning the 10 to 18 age category, Zoe Winters, of Hobart, wrote she wanted a kayak for Christmas.

The 19 and older age category’s winner is Ebony Nicholson, of Portage. For Christmas, Nicholson asked that all needy children have food to eat, all homeless families have a roof over their heads and that she be able to give her great-grandmother one last hug and kiss.
