Back in 2020 we helped the Surry Elementary 2nd Grade Class with their Postcard Challenge. They are at it again, trying to collect postcards from each of the 50 states.

WDEA and our listeners/readers have a long history with the Postcard Challenge. It started 9 years ago back in 2015 when we helped the 3rd Grade Class at the Hancock Elementary School, and  in 2016 it was time to help the 4th Grade Class at the Tremont Consolidated School, in Bass Harbor with their postcard challenge!

The reason they do the Postcard Challenge is that they are studying Geography, and want to fill their map with postcards from around the United States! So here's how you can help...

LOOK: 35 Vintage Cereals That Perfectly Captured Pop Culture Moments

Movies and TV shows have always found ways to partner with cereal companies as part of their promotion strategy. While some may have come up with a giveaway in boxes, others went big by having their own cereal connected to the movie or TV show title. Here are vintage cereals that were used to promote some of pop culture's biggest moments (and some you probably forgot about).
