A Poignant Contest Entry

While the contest winners will be chosen by random drawing, this is the most poignant entry so far.

Katelyn Pfeister is posing with Warnings in front of a memorial to the victims of the horrible "Tri-State Tornado" (MO-IL-IN) that killed 689 people on March 18, 1925.
The memorial lists the people killed by the tornado in the school.

We hope that the progress in weather science described in Warnings will prevent anything like this from ever happening again.
If you would like to enter our contest (still plenty of time), click here for details.

ADDITION:  The Longfellow School after the tornado.
