It's time to announce the 'winner' of the Dismaying Class Assignments Contest. With due recognition to Heather Voran's music notation note cards, Rick Tanski's (and David Keane's) tissues for class credit, Louise Maine's biome coloring, Amy Vejraska's number scroll (complete with sand bucket prize!), and all of the other worthy entrants, I'm going to award a CASTLE mug to Sylvia Martinez for her entry regarding high school students' coat hanger mobiles. Molly, you were an extremely close second with your entry about alphabetizing Revolutionary War battles...

Thanks to everyone who participated. Stay tuned for my next contest!
