Fuquay-Varina High School’s “Sleepy Sheepy” won the People’s Choice Award in the 2009 Farm Animal Frenzy competition at the N.C. State Fair. “Sleepy Sheepy” received 505 votes in online polling, outdistancing Durham School of the Arts’ “Raul the Rooster,” which placed second with 426 votes.
Fuquay-Varina’s entry had garnered an honorable mention in the judges’ competition, but proved to be the most popular with the public. As the PCA winner, the high school gets bragging rights for the next year.
Below is the high school’s description of its winning entry.
Sleepy Sheepy has just finished eating jam from his JAM PACKED WITH FUN jar and has fallen asleep. He is dreaming of all the wonderful things at the fair. He is COUNTING all the great fair food and dreaming of everything that will make him A WHOLE LOTTA HAPPY! Sleepy Sheepy is definitely A WHOLE LOTTA GREEN with a body made of 5 gallon buckets, a head made of a soccer ball and sand bucket, legs made from plastic bottles and fur made from bottle caps. He can’t wait to wake up and enjoy A WHOLE LOTTA HAPPY at the N.C. State Fair!
