Canada's Yukon Territory is holding its hottest contest of the year, although hottest might not really be the best term to describe it.
Takhini Hot Pools in the town of Whitehorse is holding its seventh annual Hair Freezing Contest. Participants competing for the $700 grand prize jump into the hot pools, which have an average temperature of about 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and get their hair wet. Then they wade in the water for a couple of hours and let the sub-zero air temperature freeze their hair into shape-able ice sculptures.
Participants can do this anytime in the month of February and then submit a photo of their frozen follicles to the official contest. The winner is announced in March.
