The Cow Chip Contest

By Brenda B. Covert
1     Max left the big city for a week in a small town. His Uncle John had asked him to come. Uncle John had a son named Tate. Max slept on the floor in Tate's room. He and Tate played games. Max was glad that he had come.
 
2     One day they went to the fair. There were things to see and things to eat. There were rides. There were games. There was a cow chip contest.
 
3     Max wiped some mustard on his pants instead of using a napkin. "I have heard of potato chips," he said, "but I have never heard of cow chips."
 
4     Uncle John laughed. He swallowed his last bite of hot dog. "Cow chips aren't like potato chips at all! This is a funny contest. I'll buy a ticket. They are only five dollars each."
 
5     Max looked around. He saw a Ferris wheel. He saw bumper cars. He saw cotton candy. "Where are the cow chips?" he asked.
 
6     Tate laughed and tossed his cup in a trash can. "There won't be any cow chips until after three o'clock."
 
7     The three of them strolled out to a green field. Other people were standing in the field. Someone had mowed it and drawn a huge chalk grid on it. There was a chalk number written inside of each square in the grid.
 
8     "I put my money on plot number eleven," Uncle John said, looking at his ticket. "The winner gets five hundred dollars!"
 
9     Max looked around. He saw a hot dog and drink stand. "Where are the cow chips?" he asked. "And how does the contest work?"
