  1. Trevor's guess is Suriname.

  2. Trevor's guess is Suriname.

  3. I sincerely doubt I'm first but that looks like Suriname's flag to me.

  4. The flag is for the Republic of Suriname

  5. It's the flag of the Republic of Surimane

  6. Congratulations to Trevor. His guesses came in first and second, so he wins!

    It is kind of not fair, I guess, to the rest of the world, since Trevor, at age 9, is the only geography genius that I know of in Salem (or anywhere for that matter.)

    Trevor wins a gift certificate for Brunch for Two to the Sunday Jazz Brunch at the Hawthorne Hotel. Way to go, Trevor! I hope you will enjoy it.

    Watch the mail for your certificate.


  7. I think a 9-year old geography genius deserves a nice Sunday Brunch! Congrats to Trevor!
