Here’s the winner of Charlie Crist’s Pinellas Homemade Mask contest

More than 2,000 people voted in the contest.

In an effort to encourage people to wear a face mask, Congressman Charlie Crist and people in his office came up with the idea for a Pinellas Homemade Mask Contest in July.

Nearly 50 people sent in their homemade creations. Voting happened online and ran through Aug. 4.

More than 2,000 people voted. According to a news release from Rep. Crist’s office, the results were close. But the winner was Janna Kennedy Hyten, who created an intricate, sculptural scene of a fancy couple at the opera.

Since the results were so close, four runners up were also announced.
