Our June KIDS’ KORNER Super Sleuth challenged young readers to research the origin of Bonza Bottler Day. For a chance to win $25, they also were asked to find the page number where a picture of this unique holiday’s mascot can be found and also explain how they’d celebrate. The correct answers are: The day each month when the month’s number is the same as the day (such as Aug. 8) and page 40, which shows a groundhog. Dylan Austin Love, our $25 winner, said he’d celebrate Bonza Bottler Day by going on a hike, then enjoying a picnic complete with cake and ice cream.

Congratulations, Dylan!
