“Clue Number One: Look among the smelly invaders and colorful edibles.

Clue Number Two: Beginning Advanced Spanish

Clue Number Three: Approximate elevation 228 meters

How will they top this?

“We’ll unveil a theme and you’ll have 24 hours to produce and submit your work. We’ll take the next 24 to select, edit, design and lay everything out. The end results will be a beautiful glossy paper magazine, delivered right to your old-fashioned mailbox. Don’t like paper? Word. We’re also going to roll out a Website and iPad version over the same weekend. Oh! And we’ll keep the cameras rolling the entire time. There may even be a radio program. We promise it will be insane.”
