What could this odd mix of creatures possibly be? The Patriot Talon hosted a pumpkin decorating contest, showcasing UT Tyler students' creativity and Halloween spirit. Participants were allowed one pumpkin per team or individual, along with paint, decorative materials and other supplies. The winners were determined by a panel of judges. First place went to Ahmira Manalac and her unique unicorn. Second place went to the Norma Perez-Garcia and Kerry Smith's chicken pumpkin. Last but not least, third place went to Nallely Vasquez and Daisy Vargas and their uplifting "Happy fall, y'all" pumpkin.
