Patch’s Little Pumpkin Costume Challenge is Now Closed

Heidi Klum will choose the Grand Prize winner from our favorite photos of your creative kids' costumes

Which kid in America has the most creative Halloween costume in the pumpkin patch? That's what we intend to find out with your photos and the help of celebrity judge Heidi Klum, who will select the Grand Prize winner.

Patch will whisk the winner to New York or Los Angeles for a three-day, two-night trip for two that includes a meet and greet with Heidi, plus a donation of $1,031 to a local charity of the winner's choice. Nine runners up will also get a $1,031 donation from Patch to a local charity of their choice. Full contest rules are .

We have stopped accepting entries for the contest, but we'd love for you to continue sharing your Halloween photos on Patch! Simply click the green Submit Your Photos button (above or below), and upload your image. To add a caption, click Edit Photo after uploading the image, and fill in the caption line. Then click Finished Editing.

We are sending the best of the best to Heidi, and she will choose the top photo this week. She will also announce the nine finalists who have won $1,031 for charity.

Be sure to support Heidi Klum’s efforts to feed the hungry. Visit Trick or Treat for UNICEF! And find more of Heidi’s Halloween favorites at heidiklum.aol.com.

We'd be honored to be able to win money for our favorite local charity! I entered my daughter as Elvis! I am excited to see the other entries! Thanks Patch for the opportunity!

Very cool, Heather. She's definitely got "the look" down!

One thing I forgot to mention, to Heather and everyone who plan to submit photos: Photos should be uploaded to the article page that announces the contest with child’s name, entrant’s name and local charity of choice. That info can be added after the photo is uploaded by clicking edit photo, and filling in the Caption field.

Glad we got this figured out. And what a great charity!

We live in Roseville, Ca and I accidently uploaded to the wrong Patch site. I'm not sure if this matters but I just wanted to let you know. Happy Halloween!

Hi Chris. Great photo! We just need you to do one little thing before we can count this in the contest. Can you go in and include this info: your full name and your child's full name. Click edit photo and fill in the caption field with the info. If you look at Heather Johnson's photo, she did it exactly right.
