Tyler Kozar of Pittsburgh, Penn., has been selected as the grand prize winner of the Pop-Tarts Pop It Forward Contest, giving him the opportunity to spread fun far and wide – with a prize of one million Pop-Tarts toaster pastries.
The contest asked the question: “What would you do with one million Pop-Tarts toaster pastries?” Throughout the fall, thousands of entrants logged on to the Pop-Tarts Facebook page for a chance to win the Grand Prize of one million pastries.
Kozar, a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, was selected as the grand prize winner for his idea to create Pop-Tarts Pop Art for the students and public to enjoy.[ Also Read: Shane Wise Makes the Next Best Move ] [ Also Read: Katie is Champion in the Cupcake Challenge ]
