Coloring Contest 

Last month's coloring-contest judges were a bunch of lucky ducks. They got to peruse more than 70 wacky, wonderful creations from young artists, including a rapping duck, a mathematician named McQuack and duckling royalty. Some kids created whole narratives around their waterfowl — an anxious duck just trying to make it through kindergarten and a bird who got lost while hunting for Easter eggs. Keep the creativity coming, and congratulations to all the winners!
