Buffalo, N.Y.– APWagner.com, an appliance parts website, is excited to announce the winners for North America’s Oldest Appliance Contest.
North America’s Oldest Appliance Contest was held to celebrate the 80th anniversary of AP Wagner. It was a nationwide call to find the oldest appliance, working or not, in the United States or Canada. Contestants entered the contest by sending a two-minute video featuring their old appliances. Video entries were judged on age of the appliance as well as originality and creativity. The contest ran from October 15, 2007- January 31, 2008.
The contest had six categories. The categories and their respective winners are listed below:
