    Clue 1:
    2022 is now in the past,
    And with that brings the new year
    And the beginning of the 73rd Annual Sleigh and Cutter Festival,
    Meaning the 2023 Frosty Contest is here.
    Who will be the first ones,
    To guess whois behind the mask?
    The rules give you all you need to know,
    So, no need to ask!
    Week by week,
    A new clue will emerge,
    With information about their identity,
    To help your thoughts and guesses converge.
    As is tradition,
    Frosty is well known,
    And in Waseca
    Their family has grown.

    Clue 2:
    Have you begun to rack your brain,
    and put together a list?
    Guessing the identity of Frosty
    Is not something to be missed.
    Raised in Waseca,
    But leaving state for college,
    Frosty returned to their home roots,
    To share their wealth of knowledge.
    Raising their children,
    While building a career,
    Frosty has made an impact
    On those close and dear.
    While not at work,
    Frosty can be found,
    Ice fishing in the winter,
    In summer, camping on North Shore ground.

    Clue 3:
    To give you an age range,
    And to add to what you have been told,
    Frosty, born in the 70s,
    On average, is not that old.
    Graduating in the 90s,
    From Waseca Senior High,
    Frosty and their many siblings,
    Kept their parents busy thats no lie.
    Much like their parents,
    Waseca is where Frosty has stayed.
    Not following in their footsteps,
    But Frostys work ethic they laid.
    Working in different seasons,
    But their favorite job so far,
    Has been coaching the littles,
    Building an athletic star.

    Clue 4:

    This week brings with it,
    Frosty clue number four.
    With only five being released,
    Next week means there is just one more.
    Study the clues,
    and review the facts,
    Frostys contribution to the community,
    Their presence, young lives it impacts.
    Described as approachable and encouraging
    In 2000, the career they did embark,
    Working alongside peers and faculty,
    Helping many meet their mark.
    23 years and running,
    Frosty has worked in their role,
    Moving up in the ranks,
    Now Frosty is in control.

    Clue 5:

    Before Frostyō€¨›s identity is revealed,
    At the Sleigh and Cutter Dinner and Dance,
    Make your guess by Friday the 17th,
    3:30 p.m., that will be your last chance.
    Married since 2003,
    Frosty has built a life,
    Adding three new additions,
    Together with his loving wife.
    Re-read the last line,
    And quickly you will realize.
    Frosty, a man from Waseca
    Is one that many do idolize.
    Use the first four clues,
    Plus what you learned from this one,
    enter your final guess,
    And wait to see if you won!
