The KidPub House project is COMPLETED!!!! After many weeks and many polls and many suggestions, we are ready to do the final test. AS SOON AS THIS POST IS POSTED THE TEST
BEGINS AND YOU CAN BEGIN EARNING POINTS. YOUR POINTS GAINED BEFORE DO NOT COUNT. The points you earn now do count.
The final name for House #1 is Land.
I was glad that it worked with the set of Land, Sea, and Sky, but I wanted people to vote on what they wanted, which I why I didn't let it win automatically (which would be unfair of me). Just that to
answer your accusation, Red Zero. And also to answer another question, I did not put a restriction of the amount of words for poetry. When I said "more than a few lines" I just meant that it should not
be something someone randomly scribbled in five seconds just to get points. I did not mean to say short poems are not allowed.
HOW TO GET STARTED
1. Join a House (Land, Sea, or Sky. You can choose which House you want. To join, post what House you joined on this post)

3. Get writing! Every time you post something, go to your House thread and post what you did and how many points you got. (A list of points is below)
