In spring 2014, we held a prize drawing for anyone who saw our posters and completed an online feedback survey. The drawing was held on Monday, March 10th, 2014 (3/10/14). Congratulations to our winners: Cynthia L. (Middle School Teacher) – Sports and Science books, Jennifer B. (High School Teacher) – Science Kit, and Jennifer M.
