GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Enter to win our Backyard Snowmelt Challenge here!

Our backyard has gathered a lot of snow this winter.

Like, a LOT.

And it may not be over yet, but someday soon it will be spring. And the snow will begin to melt.

So to keep our spirits up, we're making a game of guessing when the last of the snow in our backyard will melt. The KARE 11 Weather Team - Belinda Jensen, Sven Sundgaard and Laura Betker - will act as the judges determining the official final snow melt day.

A grand prize winner will be chosen at random from all of the people who guess the correct date. That winner will receive a Days End Glider Tete-A-Tete from By The Yard.

Up to 30 runners-up will also be chosen at random from those who guessed correctly, to win either a KARE 11 rain gauge or a KARE 11 weather calendar.

Entries are open March 2 to March 17, 2019. Enter online here or on the KARE 11 Facebook page under the "Contests/Sweepstakes" tab on the left. The winners will be chosen after May 3, or when the snowmelt is complete.
