Have you been keeping track of the facts relating
to the oppression of the citizens in North Korea over the past several
weeks? The person who has all 8 facts down, and can present them to Junior
Jamie Lee first, will receive a $20 gift card to the store of their choice.
Jamie can be found in the upper 700 wing early in the morning. Here is the last
fact, good luck!
- A crime in North Korea can be as simple as
spreading out a newspaper on the floor, with Kim Jong Il's face on it. This
infraction would likely result in the family being sent to a prison camp or
possible public execution for rebellion against the state.
