Did it really happen? amelia Island contest

Hey, do you think you can guess which events really happened and which ones are just made up? You do? Then you’ll want to enter this cool contest! Every person who correctly guesses at least 15 of the questions will win a new Bitsy Mystery bookmark and will get their names listed in Bitsy’s Hall of Fame!

You’ll see the events listed below. Just e-mail your answers by numbering 1 through 20 and put “Yes” if you think it really happened and “No” if you don’t think it really happened. Remember, it didn’t have to happen to me–I just might know someone that it happened to. The important thing is–did it happen in real life to somebody I know?

Don’t forget to ask your parents if it’s OK to enter. You should never send an e-mail to someone you don’t know–not even me–without asking your parents.

Oh, and please just enter this contest one time so everybody gets an equal chance, OK? Thanks! Here goes!
