2021 Scared of Santa Photo Contest winner announced


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The submissions for the 2021 Scared of Santa Photo Contest have been voted on and a winner has been crowned.

Charlee Jade Motes was determined to have the greatest fear of Christmas this year, topping the list of entries this holiday season.

Charlee’s photo showing her frightened expression with the jolly man in the big, red suit was considered the best, and now she and her family will receive the grand prize of $250 and a big screen TV.

Congratulations as well to Leah Blanchard who won the $250 random drawing just for voting.

The Scared of Santa Photo Contest is presented by the First Bank of Alabama and the Redmond and Casey Family Dentistry, which will soon be known as the Southern Smiles of Sylacauga.

A photo gallery of all the submissions is included below, and you can also listen to Michael Brannon’s interview on MiX 106.5 with Charlee’s mother, Alley Smith Motes.

Thank you to all who participated and Merry Christmas!
