Oklahomans among finalists in HGTV’s “$15,000 Battle Your Blah Backyard Contest”

Melissa Hayer Published: May 12, 2011

Last year CSN Stores partnered with HGTV’s Justin Cave, host of Ground Breakers, to launch a national search for the person with the most yawn-inducing outdoor space, according to a news release.

After receiving 13,000 entries, 100 finalists have been chosen, and two of them are Oklahomans.

Sherri McCarty of Spavinaw and Abby Morgan of Oklahoma City are among the finalists eligible for a new backyard that includes $15,000 worth of landscaping, furniture, fire pits, grill goods, lighting, accessories, and more.

To browse through all of the finalist entries, rate their photos, and help choose the backyard makeover winner, visit the Contest Corner at

The grand prize, second and third place winners are scheduled to be announced June 15.
