Forum employees throughout the building got in the holiday spirit and coordinated within their departments to develop a theme for their costumes. Departments came dressed as everything from the characters from Harry Potter to the animated Minions characters to Roman citizens. But Forum Halloween Costume Contest judge Stephanie Erickson, who has been crowned Ms. North Dakota, gave the first place nod to the Creative Services Department whose theme was “French Kiss.”
Loftsgard and Porter took the top individual honors. Loftsgard was awarded first place in the “Best Costume” category for her portrayal of Albus Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series. And Porter was awarded first place in the “Most Creative” category for her jellyfish that lit up costume.
The Forum is owned by Forum Communications Co. Forum Communications is a multimedia information company based in Fargo, and owns dozens of newspapers, websites and television and radio stations, and commercial printing plants in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
