HAGERSTOWN -- The Hagers-Town Town and Country Almanack is holding its annual woolly bear caterpillar contest this month.
The contest runs through Oct. 30.
Entries will be accepted for the "cutest and cuddliest" and the "biggest and woolliest."
All entries should be taken to 1120 Professional Court, second floor, Hagerstown. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The person who submits the winning entry in each category will receive $100. The runners-up will receive $25.
The thickness of the woolly bears' bands is said to be a guide to the severity of the coming winter.
