Who’s the ultimate clue hunter?
By Lauren on March 11th, 2011
When I was younger I wanted to be an archeologist. Inspired by a lesson on King Tut in my sixth grade history class, I loved the idea of traveling around the world, digging up clues and learning about lost civilizations. Too bad The 39 Clues wasn’t around when I was a kid. An interactive multimedia adventure that encourages kids to read the books, collect the cards, play the online game, and win prizes, the series highlights famous historical figures such as Benjamin Franklin in Book One: The Maze of Bones and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Book Two: One False Note.
Since the launch of the series in 2008, fans have been using their in-depth knowledge of the books to enter to win a $10,000 grand prize. Thousands of clue hunters competed, but only the top 39 Madrigal agents became finalists! The final agents came from all over the U.S. — like Bob Feullo from Methuen, MA , Nick Wagner from Tonawanda, New York , R.J. Antonello, Alejandro Guerrero, and Kelsey Landau from South Florida , and Ivy Tran and Grace Velasco from Redlands, CA . Each faced one final challenge for the $10,000 prize: the competitor who could answer the most Cahill questions correctly in the shortest amount of time would win the grand prize, not to mention the bragging rights as the ultimate clue hunter. And now, that ultimate clue hunter has been revealed! Drumroll please…
It’s 12-year-old Christopher Schemanske from Pinckney, Michigan! He answered ALL 39 questions correctly!
Says Christopher of his big win, “The 39 Clues is an awesome book series. Following Amy and Dan around the globe in the hunt for clues was very exciting. The online clue hunt and missions and trading cards was fun, too. Me and my brother loved playing the card game. I am so excited about the new 39 Clues series that is coming out. I can’t wait to find out who is a Vesper!” Congratulations, Christopher!
