Great Minds *Don’t* Think Alike Contest Winners!

Hello, everyone!
 .
I’m sorry for the delay. My computer froze and I had to find another one to use. 😦
 .
HUGE thanks to all of you who entered my Great Mind *Don’t* Think Alike contest! I can honestly say that the judges and I were completely blown away by your work and making the final choices was very hard – hence the extra prizes added 🙂
 .
First of all, there were hundreds of kids who entered – which made me SO HAPPY! You were also amazing. Truly. I may take some time off from riding this summer to invent a teleporting machine so I can come congratulate you all in person! 😊
 .
The winners were chosen by taking several things into account – the projects themselves, the difficulty levels, the time it would take to create it, how unique/out of the box it is, personal notes written by the student and, finally, notes written from the entrants’ teachers. Some of these pictures do not do the projects justice; some have intricate stories attached to them. Each judge gave a rating to each project. When the ratings were all added up this is how it shook out…
 .
So, without further adieu
 .
DRUM ROLL…
