    A panel of "celebrity" judges picked the top five snowmen entries in this week's Pat Collins Snowman Challenge. The winner will be announced at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

    Take the second annual Pat Collins Snowman Challenge! We may not have much snow, but it's definitely enough to get creative with.

    Build your snowman, snowwoman, snowdog, snowhelicopter... whatever you can make that's your most inventive idea. Then snap a photo and tweet it to @PatsSnowStick.

    One lucky snow creator may be recognized with a Snow Stick of his or her very own.

    The competition is stiff so far (especially given the amount of snow we got!) We've seen mini Pat Collinses, hipster snowmen from Columbia Heights, snow pigs, snow bunnies, snow cats and several snowmen who were suggested as replacement coaches for the Redskins.
