Advantage Contests for K-8 past contests and winners
Take your best shot!
They shot. They scored! As our Warrior basketball players took their best shots on the court this season, our grade school friends took their best shot on guessing how many total points both varsity teams would score combined throughout all their games.
They also broke it down for us—girls v. boys—so we could break a tie.
Total points scored: 2588
Congrats to our Gold winner who got the EXACT total number of combined points. (So very close on boys & girls too!)
William Hirschfeld, St. Paul, Lake Mills, 5th grade
Total: 2588 (Girls: 1200 Boys: 1388)

LLHS Summer Reading Contest
Winner: Violet Larson, Peace, Sun Prairie 4th grader
The job was to write a funny or original caption for this photo.
Our K–8 readers found this contest challenging, but we were very happy to announce our winner:
Winner: Lillian Brey, a 3rd grader from Zion, Columbus
In celebration of the LES basketball tournament on the LL campus in February 2017,
We asked K-8 students to guess . . .How many total donuts can 8 high school students eat in one minute?
The answer? 42!
(Think it's low? We did too! In their defense, the donuts were day-old and so were a bit chewy!)
