Attention, all creative kids. (That’s everyone reading this, right?) The deadline for Weekend’s annual holiday gift wrap contest is Nov. 28.
The contest is open to kids age 12 and younger. Entries will be judged in four age categories: 6 and younger, 7- to 8-year-olds, 9- to 10-year-olds and 11- to 12-year-olds. Judges will choose three finalists in each category; they will be posted online, where readers will vote on the winner, which will be featured in Weekend on Dec. 23.
Send entries to: Weekend and Going Out Guide Wrapping Paper Contest, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.
Puzzle update: Thanks to everyone who solved the jigsaw puzzle at kidspost.com for a chance to win tickets to “Dr. Dolittle” at Imagination Stage. We had four winning entries by 6:53 Tuesday morning. Just goes to show that the early birds get the tickets!
