If you and your students enjoyed this contest, we’d love to have you participate in our spring nationwide internet contest called America Answers. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can find information and an entry form on our website. This contest window gives you two weeks to complete it so hopefully, it is more convenient for your busy spring schedule. The dates next spring are April 1 – April 12, 2019. Thank you so much for your participation and we look forward to having you again this spring or next fall.
