Count the dots and win at the library

Win big with this dotty cat. Guess the number of dots on the canvas to the closest number and win a $50 Gift Card to Michael’s Arts & Crafts store in Duluth. (Hint: Think 1000s.) Pick a cute name for the cat and win again. If your name is chosen, you will receive a $25 Gift Card to Michael’s. Winners announced July 31, 2009. The children in this photo take their time to come up with creative names for the cat along with thoughtful guesses for the number of dots on the canvas.
