NORTH CAROLINA (WECT) - They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case it's worth an all-expense paid weekend at the aquarium.
Kayley Ireland of Merritt mimicked the face of her big catch to win a big prize. Her photo won the North Carolina Aquarium's "Show Us Your Fish Face" contest.
Kayley won a two-night stay at the Hampton Inn Atlantic Beach, dinner at a local restaurant, a behind-the-scenes tour at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores and a family membership in the North Carolina Aquarium Society.
Kayley caught the 22-inch puppy drum shown in the photo while fishing with her grandparents.
Throughout the past year, people of all ages submitted their contest photos on-line. Judges chose one winner per month. Those 12 each received a $25 North Carolina Aquariums gift basket of goodies and moved on to compete for the grand prize.
