Winners: 2015 Texas Independence Day flag flying contest

image: flag contestBelow are the winners in the 2015 Texas Independence Day Texas flag flying contest as selected by Pratt on Texas.

Each winner will receive a Texas flag flown over the Texas Capitol on San Jacinto Day, 21 April 2015.

We had great entries from all regions but the KFYO audience really dominated this year. A 4th winner was added as Carl Tepper’s “Chairman’s Choice” as he was included in the judging this year after reminding all on-air while guest hosting that the contest was his idea several years ago! Congratulations to all and thanks to all who entered – all the photos were very nice this year. – Pratt
