It is easy to tell that another Seymour Simon school visit week is coming up -  we have been getting so many comments from new readers on the Seymour Science blog. Students in Wayne, New Jersey, Skillman, New Jersey and Newtown, Pennsylvania  - this contest is for you!

Two lucky winners will receive personally autographed copies of Seymour Simon’s OUR SOLAR SYSTEM (grades 3-6) and PLANETS AROUND THE SUN (grades K-2).


Here is what you have to do to enter the 3 Cheers for Pluto Contest:

1.    Seymour is thinking about writing a book about Pluto. That means he is starting to research information about the dwarf planet.

2.    He would like you to add your own research about Pluto. Click the yellow "Comments" link at the bottom of this blog post, and tell Seymour 3 facts about Pluto.

3.    You can find your facts on this blog, in Seymour’s books about the solar system, or using other resources, like the library and the Internet. Any fact is ok (as long as it is true!)

4.    Tell us your name (first name only), school and email address. If you do not have an email address, tell us your teacher’s name, so we can contact you if you are the winner.

5.    Be sure to post your entry by midnight, Friday, February 10. The contest ends then.

Two winners will be chosen randomly from all the correct entries. Older students may enter individually, and we will pick one winner. Students in grades K-2 may enter as a class and work with their teacher to enter the contest; there will be one classroom winner.

Do you need some help getting started? You can find facts about Pluto right on this blog. Look at all the entries under the label "Solar System." We guarantee you that you will find information there!

So, get to work and send us your entries today. Your comments will be invisible until everyone has a chance to enter. Once the contest is over, we will post everyone’s writing.

Good luck!
