Mainer in the Running for Top Prize in National Competition 

A Mainer is a finalist in a nation-wide competition. Amanda Smith is the superintendent at the Winterport Water District. She’s one of nine finalists in the Cintas & Carhartt Cold Crew Contest. Carhartt makes work clothing perfect for outdoor jobs in the cold. ” We spend a lot of time outside in this business obviously on a moments notice and more than anything I thought I could use even a runner up prize. I could use a new jacket, ” said Smith. The grand prize is a four-day trip to the Country Music Awards Festival in Nashville. Smith said if she wins it will be a long overdue honeymoon. She’s been married for 12 years and still hasn’t had a honeymoon. You can vote through the end of the month. Click here to vote.
