We have for you today two updates from our wonderful Contest Crew regarding the launch latest contest and the results of our previously held How to Spot a Werewolf Contest.

First up, back by popular demand, we have now launched another round of our Two-Part Riddle Contest. As readers will remember from last time, the first part of this contest asks you to submit riddles during the month of April. Each riddle must be less than 75 words and relate to a person, place, or thing found in the seven Harry Potter books. Once all entries have been submitted, our contest crew will pick the ten best riddles and post them in the Contest Corner of the Leaky Lounge forum every Monday and Friday at 9am EST during the month of May. Those interested in taking part in the second leg of the contest may then email their answer to each riddle to the contest staff. Those who submit correct answers to the riddle will be included in a drawing, along with the ten individuals who had riddles selected as part of the first part of the contest, for their own wand from Wizard Wood Wands. Full information on both parts of this contest can be found via this link.

Anyone over the age of 13, who is not involved in the judging process, may submit up to three original riddles (with their answers) to [email protected] before midnight EST on April 22, 2009 with “Riddle Entries” in the subject line of the email.
