Can you believe summertime is over? Neither can we! Well, Hopkins wanted us to tell you everything he experienced this summer including several makeovers, trips to places all around the world, and he even discovered some pretty unusual places along the way. He wanted us to tell you, ‘”Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this year’s contest…and THANK YOU ALL for showing me the world!”
With that, we are proud to announce the Hopkins Summer Road trip winners.

Second Place – Marie F., Bountiful, UT
We took Hopkins with us to a lily pond where he could feel at home. But it’s not just any lily pond (just like Hopkins isn’t just any frog.) This lily pond is Isa Lake in Yellowstone National Park on the Continental Divide which means half of the waters flows to the Atlantic Ocean, and half of it flows to the Pacific Ocean. Just like Hopkins (and Signing Time!) get to touch lives all around the country, and the world.
