Riddle Contest

RIDDLE ME THIS! What do you win if you submit a riddle that the Summer Institute for kids uses for their Riddle of the week? You win your very own Animation kit!

We NEEEEED some new riddles!

AT the Summer Institute for kids, every Tuesday is RIDDLE DAY. We pose a riddle for the younger kids (K-2) and one for the older kids (3rd-6th).

But this year we NEED some new riddles. Send us your best riddle and, if we use it, you will win an Animation Kit and have your name publicized on the Summer Institute website. You can submit as many riddles as you'd like to but you can only win one prize.

Riddles can be submitted by kids who will be entering grades Kindergarten through sixth grade in the fall 2017. The riddle can be for any age from 5 to 13 years old.

(Parents: Please let your children make up or find their own riddles.)

What is a riddle?

  • It's a question or statement intentionally phrased so as to require ingenuity in ascertaining its answer or meaning, typically presented as a game.
  • A mystifying, misleading, or puzzling question posed as a problem to be solved or guessed.

A specially selected committee will read all of the riddles and make decisions. All decisions are final.


Here are some examples of riddles:
  • What can you catch but not throw? (a cold-achoo!)
  • A cowboy rides into town on Friday, stays only three days, but leaves on Friday. How does he do it? (his horse’s name is Friday)
  • Clara Clatter was born on December 27th, yet her birthday is always in the summer. How is this possible? (In the southern hemisphere December is in the summer)

So, give it a try! Submit your riddle below!

The deadline is May 17, 2017
