LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It's gold, new to the awards club
and has a mega-watt smile. It's a Scorpio and is the envy of all the other
awards in town. It's "The Jackie," the official award of the "Hub Network's
First Annual Halloween Bash" national costume competition, airing Saturday,
October 26, 8–10 p.m. ET/5–7 p.m. PT on the Hub Network, a destination for
kids and their families.




The jack-o'-lantern inspired award was designed by Oishii Creative and
manufactured by Society Awards, the company behind the awards for the American
Music Awards, Directors Guild Awards, Golden Globes, MTV Video Music Awards
and SXSW, among others. With a total height of 18-inches and an estimated
weight of 10-pounds, "The Jackie" features a golden pumpkin elevated on a
2-inch pedestal. The award artfully integrates the iconic shape of the Hub
Network logo into both eyes, and has a welcoming, yet mysterious smile.

The first-of-its-kind award will be featured at the "Halloween Bash" which
will include the first-ever nationwide Halloween costume competition, where 50
semi-finalists representing each state in America will win a trip to Los
Angeles to be a part of the televised costume competition judged by
Halloween-expert Martha Stewart, actor Hal Sparks ("Spider Man 2"), and
actress, singer and dancer Coco Jones ("Holla at the DJ").One lucky winner
will be crowned the "Best in Bash" National Champion, receive $25,000 and a
chance at a walk-on role on the Hub Network's Daytime Emmy® Award-winning
series, "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series."

Semi-finalists will be competing for "The Jackie" in the following categories:

  oHowlarious– Shows the lighter side of Halloween with a take on a fun,
    funny or otherwise hilarious costume.
  oSpooktacular– Get ready to frighten America by showcasing the most
    spine-chilling costume for all the ghosts and ghouls out there.
  oMad Genius– Unique, original, innovative and never seen before. A knight
    in armor fashioned from bottle caps, bat wings made from old umbrellas, or
    a cardboard-box jetpack, the possibilities are endless. Display a costume
    unlike any other — show your Mad Genius.
  oBlast from the Past– Take a stroll down memory lane with a timeless
    costume. Memories, nostalgia and yesteryear brought to life. Show your
    take on great figures from before the 20^th century or a retro 50's sock
    hop get up, 60's flower child or other "period" inspired costumes.
  oAnimal Kingdom– Transform into a living creature from the past or
    present. Be a roaring lion, a school of jellyfish, a firefly, or a
    Tyrannosaurus Rex.
  oEveryday Stuff– We're looking for the coolest refrigerator/freezer,
    remote control, mailbox, block of Swiss cheese, telephone and more. Be
    creative and transform the ordinary into the extra-ordinary.
