El Paso, Texas, got first place in the Kraft Hockeyville contest. East Grand Forks got first runner up.
Great job! It couldn’t have been done without the support of surrounding communities. First runner up is an awesome outcome. East Grand Forks has the smallest population, at approximately 8,000, of the four finalist communities. El Paso has the largest, with approximately 682,000.
None of this would have happened if someone didn’t submit East Grand Forks in the contest. All of those who participated deserve a pat on the back.
