The Winner of the Best Dressed Award
By Colleen Messina
  

1     The crowded room was full of strange characters. Napoleon proudly strutted over to the punch bowl and filled his crystal cup with red liquid refreshment. King Arthur stabbed a tiny hotdog wrapped in dough - a pig in a blanket - with his long (fake) sword and popped the snack into his mouth. A darkly-clad witch cackled as she told a knock knock joke. The annual masquerade ball was in full swing with everyone dressed up in incredible costumes. The bank employees and their families all looked as though they were having a good time.
 
2     Tap, tap, tap...a raspy sound made everyone pause in their conversations.
 
3     "May I have your attention, please," said a lady dressed in a shimmering blue gown. She was apparently a large fairy because she had wings and tapped the microphone with her sparkly wand.
 
4     "I have the results of our annual Best Dressed Award contest," she said. "First, I would like to introduce our judges."
