7th Annual Crossword Competition Results

Thank you all for being a part of the most successful Finger Lakes Crossword Competition to date. We hope you had fun while supporting the literacy needs of our friends and neighbors.

These are the final times of all Individuals and Teams that finished within the time limit. If you had any mistakes, the number of mistakes is listed after your time. Otherwise, you had a “Perfect Puzzle.”

We’ve also included the absurd Trivia Game along with the answers. The winner answered 14 of the 25 questions correctly.

Also, in case you were curious, there was exactly $282.70 in the “Nickel & Dimed” jar. The winner guessed $280.55. Wow!

See you all next year!
