For the entire twenty-three years of this program, Fulton Savings Bank has sponsored the first prizes and Oswego Valley Insurance Agencies have sponsored the second prizes. For the past six years, William and Karen Hubel, of the Blue Moon Grill, and the past five years Gosch Supply and Lighting Centre and for three years, Stephen Wise of Edward Jones Investments have sponsored the third place prizes.
