Our March-April KIDS’ KORNER Super Sleuth explored changes in the timetable of biological events in the natural world, such as the blooming of various types of flowers, explaining that the science of watching for signs in nature is called phenology. For a chance to win $25, young readers were challenged to find a clue hidden in the magazine (and give the page number) to identify the name of a popular festival traditionally held during the first two weeks in April and give the city where it takes place. The correct answers are page 6 and the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.

Madeleine Strickland was our $25 winner.

Congratulations, Madeleine!!
