TONGUE TWISTER CONTEST AT LOGIC PUZZLE MUSEUM

The prizes for the adult division of past year's International Tongue Twister Contest included a "portion of a peck of pickled peppers." A most appropriate reward. A yellow yo-yo (say that fast 10 times!) went to a student, and another winner took home sea shells that she could sell. Audience applause topped all prize value and laughter filled the hall. 
Come to participate or just watch, listen, laugh and enjoy it.

The Logic Puzzle Museum's Tongue Twister contest has several age divisions. Past prizes include such "tongue twister nouns" like "sea shells you can sell" or a "yellow yo-yo, " or maybe a " toy boat", and fun things like a red spinning spiral top. See you at the next one! Bring grandma and grandpa, too!
