It's officially National Donut Day! Time for our annual contest between our offices to see who can come up with the best donut creations. This year we asked each of our regional offices to submit a photo of their Easter Seals themed donut creations. We were so thrilled to have Sarah Baird, author of the Kentucky Sweets cookbook, as our guest judge. You can get a copy of her delicious treat-filled book here:

Here are this year's entries and winners. Congratulations to all who entered! 


"Krewe of Deauxliciousness" from Region 9 in Covington

Judge's verdict: Wow! This is such an amazing donut diorama, with an unbelievable amount of attention to detail that spotlights the donut, celebrates Easter Seals, and Louisiana culture. I particularly love the tiny photos of all the team members riding on top of one of the floats!

Winner - Region 9 Covinton Krewe of Deauxliciousness

1st Runner-up

"A Sweet Wave of Hope" from Monroe SPOE 

Judge's verdict: The use of both donuts and other sweets to build a creative spin on the Easter Seals theme (even incorporating the lilies) is incredibly thoughtful. The Teddy Grahams are a cute touch!

1st Runner up- Sweet Wave of Hope

2nd Runner-up

"Mr. Pickle's BBQ" from New Orleans SPOE 

Judge's verdict: Making sweet food look savory is quite a challenging task, but this BBQ-themed spread does just that while still being a little quirky. I love the fact that it's 95% edible. Pass the hot dogs, please!

2nd Runner up - Mr. Pickle's BBQ

CEO's Top Pick

"McLily Meal" from the Shreveport Mental Health office

Tracy's verdict: I appreciate the meticulous attention to detail in the McLily Meal. It's a great salute to our symbol, the lily!
