You are holding in your hands the long-awaited May 2021 Story Contest issue. A big thank you to all who participated this year! We picked four winners from three age categories (6-9, 10-13, 14-17) for this issue.


More of your stories are being considered for the June Readers’ Issue and beyond.
Both Nature’s Workshop Plus and Christian Light Publications are giving $15 gift certificates to story contest winners. Here at Nature Friend we will be giving one winner their choice of either a Vortex 8×42 Crossfire binocular, Celestron Powerseeker 127 EQ telescope, or CM1000C microscope. There will be another gift to each of the remaining 11 winners of this contest. Those gifts may vary.

I’m starting a new, regular activity for the Study Guide subscribers. You are invited to send your favorite photo taken in the issue calendar month. Secondly, you are invited to send a photo illustrating the photo lesson. Submission deadline is the 15th of the month following the issue month, but this needs to be qualified. See the Study Guide for complete details.
