I was very pleased to have my article "Candy Secrets," about candy experiments, published in Highlights magazine last October. Apparently the editors were also pleased by the article, because I have just received their Pewter Plate Award for "Nonfiction Feature of the Year." It's an actual engraved pewter plate, delivered to my doorstep yesterday afternoon.
I knew candy experiments were changing the world, but I didn't realize they'd been so well received in the world of children's literature. Thanks, Highlights!
