Calling all teens with fashion-disaster holiday sweaters

The members of The Bee's Teens in the Newsroom program invite you to participate in our first, quite-possibly-annual, Ugly Holiday Sweater Photo Contest.

The rules are easy: Have a friend take a picture of you wearing the sweater — you know, the one with the malformed Santa and reindeer — then submit the photo to The Bee.

You can do so in two ways. Go to and click the link to the contest. Or send your photo via e-mail to (That's real handy if you use a cell-phone camera.)

All teenagers may enter except members of The Bee's Teens in the Newsroom program.

Entry deadline is Tuesday.

All photos become property of The Bee and may be used in print and online. Beware: The uglier the sweater, the greater the chances we'll publish it!

The losing, er, winning, entry will be announced in Buzzz on Dec. 24. The winner will receive a case of Rockstar energy drinks, compliments of Varni Brothers 7-UP Modesto.
