Thank you to all of the students who wrote and submitted puzzles for the Mission Street Puzzles scholarship! We were absolutely blown away by the quantity and quality of the applications. As our judging team test-solved each puzzle, every single submission put a smile on our face, and it was extremely difficult to narrow down the pool to just one winner.
…so we decided to choose two winners! Huge congratulations to both of our scholarship prizewinners:
Odin McDermott (Whitman College), whose puzzle was entitled “The Inflight Magazine”
Ben Coukos-Wiley (Rochester Institute of Technology), whose puzzle was entitled “Bridges”
Starting in two weeks (July 15th) we will begin posting some of our favorite puzzles for the Scholarship Edition ten-week series. You’ll have the opportunity to solve Odin’s and Ben’s puzzles as part of this series. See you all then!
