And the Winner is...

Rachel Raasch from Appleton, Wisconsin for her hilarious, clever, and creative costume, "Eminem the M&M." Congratulations, Rachel! To honor her winning submission, we'll be flying Rachel out to New York City for the SPARK Summit on October 22nd. She'll be joining the likes of Geena Davis, Shelby Knox, Amber Madison, and many other special guest speakers.

Rachel writes, "I am so excited to go to the SPARK Summit in New York City! As a feminist advocate, I'm very passionate about the cause that SPARK is supporting. Thank you to Shelby Knox, through whom I heard about this contest. What a great way to show support for the movement to resist the sexualization of women! Thank you also to SPARK for holding this contest. Now, to start planning this year's Halloween costume..."

Rachel wasn't the only one with a brilliant costume idea. We received a ton of entries for the first ever Intervene on Halloween Costume Contest (by the way, you can check them out here), and although we wish we could send every single contestant out to NYC, each picture submitted will be included in a slideshow during the summit.

Did you miss out on this contest but want to learn more about it? Here's a little rundown!
