Here, at long last, is the winning entry for the free author visit contest.

It was difficult to choose a winner, as the entries were all amazing. I'm so impressed with the time and effort that teachers and students put into the work.

Miss Dulmage's 5th grade class at Effingham Elementary School did an amazing job of reenacting and reinterpreting Fame, Fortune, and the Bran Muffins of Doom.

I was especially impressed with the obvious time that went into the project and the fact that the kids really seemed to be enjoying themselves (especially at the very end!). How could you not enjoy pelting someone with bran muffins?

So, congratulations to Miss Dulmage and her entire class:

Kim Butler
Noah Bolstridge
Cheyann Cardinal
Nick Campion
Layla Haynes
Jeremy Hood
Charlie Jones
Dawsen Jewell
Alexander Tessier
Cynthia Verrill
Brian Winn
Emily Yacovelli
You guys rock!!

And thank you so much to everyone who participated!


  1. I cannot get any of the videos to play from the blog. The DOOM game will not work either....What's up?

    1. I'm not sure why that might be for the videos. They seem to be working properly. The game is Flash-based so you must have a Flash add-on installed to play it.
