Kelley Hansen said she’s never won anything in her life.

CBS’s Early Show changed that this week. Hansen was announced as the winner of the Early Show’s Homemade Memories contest, which she entered with an essay about a month ago.

“I’m pretty excited but it hasn’t really sunk in yet,” said Hansen, who listened to the results via telephone from the east coast one hour before the program aired in Wisconsin.

“They told us we were going to have to watch the show to find out and they wouldn’t tell us anything ahead of time,” she said. “It was horrible waiting to find out.”

Hansen entered the contest about a month ago on a whim. Her essay told a story of her mother, Kay Keough, dancing the polka in their kitchen when she was a child. Hansen’s entry was picked as one of five finalists and a CBS film crew came to her Oshkosh home to film a segment, which aired on the Early Show Nov. 13.

Voting took place on the CBS website for four days. Hansen said she won by a 5 percent margin. As the winner, Hansen will have her kitchen renovated beginning the first week of December.
