Did You Spot the Squirrel?

In the spring/summer 2019 issue of Kent State Magazine, we hid a small illustration of a black squirrel on three pages of the magazine. Those who find the squirrel in all three places qualify for a drawing to win a squirrel-themed prize package and a mention in the fall/winter 2019-20 issue of Kent State Magazine. Keep in mind the object can be hidden anywhere in the magazine, and it will not be distorted or rotated in any way.

You may enter the drawing by filling out the information below and emailing it to by August 1, 2019. Please, only one entry per household. Address information is required to notify winner, but your contact information will not be shared. 

Where did you find the squirrel?
