Annual Cranberry Contest

Lawrence School has a long tradition of holding a cranberry estimating contest each November. This is the 45th year that the contest has been held!

Students and staff may estimate how many cranberries are in the jar currently on display in the library. The contest begins today and runs through Friday, November 22. Winners in each of 4 categories will be announced on Monday, November 25. Student categories include grades K - 2, grades 3 - 5 and grades 6 - 8. There is a separate category for staff guesses.

Thanks to the generosity of our local book stores, The Children's Bookshop and Brookline Booksmith, the prize in each category is a bookstore gift certificate! Let the estimating begin!
