Out and About

A Competition of Considerable Size: DINO BEE Almost 50 third graders from Chicago, the suburbs as well as Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and even North Carolina competed in The Field Museum’s Dino Bee. Congratulations to Evan Horan of Gurnee, IL and the second place runners-up (tie), Brian Madden of Park Ridge, IL and Alex Park of St. Charles, IL. The DINO BEE was held in conjunction with the upcoming celebration of the fifth anniversary of the unveiling of Sue, the world's largest and most complete T. rex. The first place winner received a one-night stay in a "Sue Suite" at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago and tickets for two adults and five children to The Field Museum's overnight event, Dozin' with the Dinos. The second place winners received a giant plush dinosaur, t-shirts, and goody bags from the Museum store. Through a qualifying test posted on its web site, the Museum selected 50 third graders from around the country to compete in the contest. They answered questions posed by guest host Don "Dino Don" Lessem, columnist from Highlights for Children Magazine. Field Museum paleontologist, Jim Holstein, judged the contest. DINO BEE is sponsored by Chicago Parent Magazine. The Field Museum is located at 1400 S. Lake Shore Drive.
