A produce manager from the aptly named town of Valentine, Neb., is the winner of Potandon Produce’s Idaho Potato Lovers Month Display Contest.

Dawn Beckby of Henderson’s IGA in Valentine won a getaway for two to Jackson Hole, Wyo., according to a news release from Idaho Falls, Idaho-based Potandon.

Contest participants used Potandon’s Green Giant Fresh or Sunspiced Fresh branded potatoes in their displays, which incorporated romantic/Valentine’s themes in honor of Potato Lover’s Month.

More than a hundred contestants won cash prizes from the Eagle-based Idaho Potato Commission. Of those, 45 won matching cash prizes from Potandon.

Runner-ups in the contest included Fred Sweany of Wooster, Ohio-based Buehler’s Fresh Foods (1st place); Leo DeLeon of Publix Foods in Fort Pierce, Fla. (2nd place); and Bryan Bennington of Aurora, Ohio-based Sirna’s Market & Deli (3rd place).
