Patch’s Little Pumpkin Costume Challenge is Now Closed

Heidi Klum will choose the Grand Prize winner from our favorite photos of your creative kids' costumes

Which kid in America has the most creative Halloween costume in the pumpkin patch? That's what we intend to find out with your photos and the help of celebrity judge Heidi Klum, who will select the Grand Prize winner.

Patch will whisk the winner to New York or Los Angeles for a three-day, two-night trip for two that includes a meet and greet with Heidi, plus a donation of $1,031 to a local charity of the winner's choice. Nine runners up will also get a $1,031 donation from Patch to a local charity of their choice. Full contest rules are .

We have stopped accepting entries for the contest, but we'd love for you to continue sharing your Halloween photos on Patch! Simply click the green Submit Your Photos button (above or below), and upload your image. To add a caption, click Edit Photo after uploading the image, and fill in the caption line. Then click Finished Editing.

We are sending the best of the best to Klum, and she will choose the top photo this week. She will also announce the nine finalists who have won $1,031 for charity.

You can support Klum’s efforts to feed the hungry at Trick or Treat for UNICEF. And find more of her Halloween favorites at heidiklum.aol.com.

Judi, that's a great costume! What's is it supposed to be? I'm guessing something involving pixels....

Thanks! Nick is a "Minecraft Creeper" from the Minecraft video game: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Creeper. I made the T-shirt fabric online via spoonflower.com. The head is just a cardboard box with the graphic glued to it on all sides.
