The Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum in Hannibal could be lookin for you. Do you have the spirit of Huck Finn? You could be part of the fun during the Spirit of Huck Finn contest on May 26th as part of the Twain in Maine festival in downtown Hannibal.
Open to boys and girls 10 to 15, the museum is looking for boys and girls that show the spirit of Huck Finn. Executive Director Sharon Lovell says they are looking for boys and girls who have that inner Huckleberry. She says she would like to see a Huck who shows a somewhat serious showcase for the bravery and moral fiber that Huck Finn stood for back in the day. Lovell said she wants to preserve that literary spirit in a kid friendly way. To find out more, visit the Mark Twain Museum 120 North Main in downtown Hannibal.
