We’re down to the final challenge in our 5-day “Fun at Home” photo contest for the first distance learning week in the Barrington 220 School District. The final challenge might be our favorite. We have another $100 in Heinen’s gift cards as our prize and we’re giving you through this weekend to submit your entries. We’ll announce the winner or winners on Monday, March 30th.
Since we’ve all made it though the first week of distance learning, our final challenge is titled PEOPLE & PETS! Think back to all of the favorite things you found to do at home this week and all of the photos you’ve captured. Is there someone who you loved spending a little extra time with? Did your mom, dad, brother, sister, pet or children make you smile this week? Snap a photo of that person, people or pet for a chance to win. If they don’t want their picture taken? Feel free to make them a mask or costume from things you have around the house and take their picture in disguise. Raid the dress-up chest, pull out pieces from past Halloween costumes. Have fun because anything goes and thanks for sharing!
Here’s one entry we’ve already received from a long-time Barrington resident whose favorite part of this week was visiting her grandkids in the city. We’re letting the simple things make us smile as the state of Illinois issues a Shelter at Home order to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Stay healthy and THANK YOU for helping make this week more fun by playing along. We’ll be watching for your entries!

And, if you need a new song stuck in your head, give the “Hand Wash Rap” a listen. It’s pretty catchy. Stay healthy and can’t wait to kick off our contest with you next week!
