Grand Prize Winner: Congratulations to Eric Rice, you have won the “Where The Wild Things Are” Xbox and a bus shelter-size poster! Your fort was just ridiculous! It had a freakin’ third floor!!!
“I spent the long weekend building my fort out old pallets and other discarded materials. I didn’t use any nails or screws to build the actual fort, it’s lashed together with hundreds of feet of string, and is surprisingly sturdy, even on the third floor. I had an awesome time building it, and hope you guys do some more contests in the future.” – Eric

Second Prize Winner: Congratulations to Dianne Que, you have won a “Where The Wild Things Are” Prize pack!
“I’ve been drowning in adulthood lately and building this fort was such an awesome opportunity to be a kid again. i filled my cozy cloud cavern with some of my favorite doodads – yarn balls, cushions, kids books, and a star-lantern i built entirely from recycled bottlecaps.” – Dianne
ausia lauts wild things forts winner

Honorable Mention: Congratulations to Ausia Lauts, you have also won a “Where The Wild Things Are” Prize pack! It’s hard to tell from the photo but Ausia actually went out and snapped polaroids of strangers holding up lines from the book!
“It was soooooooooo much fun to make, paper chains and cranes, hanging my favorite pictures, stacking the best books and movies. I even documented Maurice Sendak’s masterpiece on a board in the form of strangers holding lines of the book under their chins while I took a Polaroid picture of them and their smiling or not so smiling faces.” – Ausia
