Beardstock! Big Prizes to be Awarded to Big Beards

Beardstock is hosting a beard contest 5 p.m., Saturday, March 12 at the Holiday Inn Riverside in Minot to celebrate all things beard and raise awareness of homelessness and money for the Minot Area Homeless Coalition.  Signups for the competition are 12-4:30 p.m. day-of, and contestants must purchase at least a one-day general admission ticket to be entered. Contestants must also be present to win.

Why bring your beard to Beardstock? Beardstock has the only beard competition in Minot and is one of two in North Dakota. You take time and effort to grow and groom your face-of-hair, so you should be rewarded for it. The competition will include contests for: best trimmed beard, best overall beard (think length and burliness), best mustache and best fake beard (for the ladies, children and beardless men). The winner of the best overall beard will receive a $200 gift card to Scheels.
