WETM 18's local TV news report on my seventh-grade contest win. I received my first 35mm camera, and my (ungrateful) junior high classmates got free chicken for lunch. Featuring Carl Proper, and taped on 04/24/1989.
Excerpted from the Corning Leader 08/13/1989: "David Scott of Corning gave his mom an early Mother's Day present this year. Scott, a student at Northside Blodgett Middle School, has been named the New York state winner in the seventh annual "All-American Salute to Mothers" greeting card contest sponsored by Kentucky Fried Chicken and Good Housekeeping Magazine. The 12-year-old artist's entry was among the 50 best of 600,000 entries. David's card featured a baby chick saying "That's my mama" and "Happy Mother's Day" on the front of the card. The inside of the card reads "...to the old CLUCK that brought me up." The winning cards will be displayed from May 1-14 at the Empire State Building."
WHOA HO HO! Look out for THESE guys!
I think they get it from the kid wearing the "bad girl" license plate t-shirt, she hangs out with the wrong crowd.
I don't think such gratuitous changes of pace should shown on network television. Or at least have a warning label or something.
