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 punch. King Arthur stabbed a tiny hot dog wrapped in a bread roll - 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 contest," she said. "First, I would like to introduce our judges."
