Contest #1: Cartography Practice
Must be completed by Friday, January 11th

All contestants must create a map of the Survivor: Arctic island, including labels identifying players' home areas and any other important features. The maps are based on each players' perception of the island, so it's OK if all of the maps are not the same (though information on the maps should be based on the journals). Please include the map in one of this week's journal entries. Good luck!

Please note: Contests do not have any direct effect on who is booted off the island each week. However, if people notice that a contestant doesn't participate in a contest, it may influence how they vote. [devil]

For all our budding cartographers: the following code will help you let people see your masterpiece in both a smaller format and a larger format:

(Take out the spaces between the square brackets and put the proper image url in it to make it work).

Contest #2: Polar Bear Snatching
Must be completed by Friday, January 18th

All remaining contestants must team up with a partner and go on a mission to find and catch a polar bear cub. If for some reason you are unable to partner up with someone because some participants are MIA, it's OK to catch one on your own. Just explain the circumstances in your journal entry. And remember: Polar bears are among the most dangerous animals in the world.

The largest meat eater living on land, polar bears are extremely protective of their cubs and attack viciously when there is a perceived threat. A polar bear can cut off a human head with a swipe of its paw.

Good luck! Feel free to include illustrations of you and your partner with the cub (if you're successful).

Contest #3: AVALANCHE!!!
Must be completed by Friday, January 25th

During this week on the island, disaster strikes. While all four of the remaining creatures are out calmly looking for food and playing games with one another, they hear a sudden rumble in the midst. The rumbling sound grows louder by the minute, until they realize: An avalanche has begun at the largest mountain on the island, and will soon be reaching their homes.

An avalanche (also called a snowslide or snowslip) is a rapid flow of snow down a slope, that results from a mechanical failure in the snowpack when the forces on the snow exceed its strength. After initiation, avalanches usually accelerate rapidly and grow in mass and volume as they entrain more snow. [...] In mountainous terrain, avalanches are among the most serious objective hazards to life and property, with their destructive capability resulting from their potential to carry enormous masses of snow at high speeds. (source)

Will they make it to safety? Or be buried and frozen in the snow? Tune in this week to find out!

Contest #4: Meltiiiiiiiing...
Must be completed by Friday, February 1st

Survivor Iceberg is feeling rather warm of late.... and the ground is a bit more slippy.... Suddenly, an ominous CRACK! is heard -- the ice is breaking apart, and shrinking at an alarming rate! Please post in your journal this week about your adventures escaping to higher ground in time before the chunk of ice that you're currently inhabiting is cast off into the sea.

Thanks to Malkin for the inspiration for this contest. :D
