This is the 18th year that we’ve held the Mojave Max Emergence Contest and on Tuesday, April 17th, Giulia Montaldo and her classmates from Doral Academy – Saddle Campus got to visit the Springs Preserve as she celebrated her win.

Giulia guessed that Mojave Max would emerge on March 23, 2018 at 11:33 am, while Max actually emerged on March 23rd at 11:11 am.

Giulia and her classmates were rewarded with a field trip and pizza party today where Giulia also received her prizes for winning the contest, which included a laptop computer, a digital camera, an “America the Beautiful” year-long pass to all National Parks and a backpack filled with all sorts of items she can use to explore the outdoors. Giulia’s teacher also received a laptop computer.

Congratulations to Giulia Montaldo!
