Cakeway to the West Top 50 Public Vote Finishers
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), January 7, 2014 - After 6 weeks of voting and more than 40,000 votes cast, stl250 has announced the top 50 public vote finishers for Cakeway to the West. One of stl250's signature projects, Cakeway to the West is a robust program that combines a public art exhibit, scavenger hunt as well as history education.

The top 50 Public Vote was launched on November 25, 2013 and concluded on January 3, 2014. Through the contest, individuals were able to vote once a day in each of five categories: Landmark Sites, Innovation, Heritage & Culture, Great Outdoors and St. Louis Favorites. The remaining 200 Cakeway locations have been selected by a task force of stl250 volunteer leaders. The full 250 locations list will be announced at a birthday weekend press conference scheduled for February 14, 2014.

More than 41,000 votes were cast and resulted in the top 50 list (attached) which ranges from grassroots to the grand scale and spans the region. stl250 executive director Erin Budde said, "The top 50 includes places where we live, learn, work and play. Some were expected and others are wonderful surprises. We're excited to add all of them to our final list of 250 locations and to learn more about our region through the stories they help us to tell."

The four-foot - tall cake sculptures decorated by local artists will serve as interactive beacons of our region's diverse places, stories and experiences. There will be a total of 250 cakes placed at these locations in the St. Louis Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) which includes 15 counties in the bi-state region.
