Today's Report Includes:

Reminder--Today Is the Last Day to Send In Your Guesses
Hurry, don't be late--if you haven't sent in your Mystery Class guesses yet, you must do so today. We know that all of you have worked very hard on your guesses, and we can't wait to tell you where your Mystery Friends are hiding. Have fun and good luck!

As we announced last week, so that this contest is fair to everyone, all guesses MUST be sent in by the end of today, Friday, April 28, 2000, or they won't be eligible for the contest.

 The clock is ticking--you must place your guess today, Friday, April 28.

To help you, we are providing the instructions again below on how to place your guess. Be sure to read and follow the instructions carefully, and send your guess by the end of today.

The Race is On! Contest Schedule
• Today, April 28: Your Guesses Due! (To be fair to everyone, any guesses sent after today will NOT be eligible for the contest.)

• May 5: Yippee! Mystery Sites will be revealed and the contest results announced.

• May 12: Meet the Mystery Sites! Your new Mystery Friends are happy to finally meet you. They'll send their personal greetings and photos too.

How to Place Your Guess

IMPORTANT: To place your guess, carefully follow the same steps as when answering a Challenge Question, and be sure to list your guess for all 10 secret Mystery locations in ONE message:
1) Send your guess by E-mail to: jn-challenge-mclass@learner.org
2) In the Subject line write: Challenge Question #4
3) In the Body of the message TELL US YOUR GRADE LEVEL and then answer this question:

Challenge Question #4
"Where in the world do you think our 10 Mystery Sites are located?"

Your answer MUST include all of the following information about each Mystery site:

a. The name of city.
b. The name of country.
c. Its latitude and longitude.

DON'T FORGET: Because we judge the contest by Grade Level, you MUST tell us YOUR GRADE LEVEL. If you do not include your grade, we will judge your answer with the 12th grade level answers.

*NOTE TO TEACHERS: Students sometimes focus heavily on "winning" the Mystery Class contest, so please be sure to remind them that the contest portion is only a small part of this Activity. Also, we are aware that there is a wide range of grade levels participating, and we will factor that in during the judging.
