New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Classic 2022 announces winners

The extremely popular Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Classic took place from Thursday, June 16 to Saturday, June 18. The competition draws thousands of spectators to see the creations as they unfold and sculptors hail from not only New England, but New York, New Jersey, and even Hawaii and Canada.

Contestants are not only competing for the accolades and applause from spectators but are also vying for cash prizes to the tune of thousands of dollars, with the winner being awarded $7,000.

The first-place winner was Hawaii’s Mélineige Beauregard for her, “I am Life” sculpture. She also took home the People’s Choice Award.
