On Monday, the Central Missouri Humane Society announced the organization's first-place win in the makeover contest. The winners are given up to $1 million in goods, services and cash. The campaign began after two 13-year-old students from Columbia Catholic School, Amanda Huhman and Libby Burkes, expressed interest in entering the shelter in the contest. The Humane Society came away from the national contest with first place, despite the fact that it was entered four months into the contest.
