(Alex: Phoebe, come on over here. I have two items for you: first of all, the trophy, which is yours to keep--we keep the big version--and you get the key to the 1993 Dodge convertible. Go over there, sit down, enjoy it. And, we'll invite all of the other contestants out in a moment. But first, I do want to mention that $60,000 in educational scholarships, thanks to the Jobs division of Chrysler Corporation, going to needy students at Harvard, Princeton, and Grinnell.)
