Murb Community Helper Contest!

Every town has many community helpers to help it run smoothly. The growing town of Murb has found that they need to have some community helpers too. So we are holding a contest to see what GREAT helpers you can create! Individuals, families, or classes can turn in their ideas! So, either work on your own, or get some friends together to come up with the best community helpers you can!
For this contest, you need to:
  • Create a Community Helper Monster (doctor, bus driver, mail carrier, etc.)
  • Design the Community Building for that monster (hospital, bus, post office, etc.)
  • Write a story, "Why this Community Helper is Important for Murb"
  • Be sure to read all of the Contest Rules below.
As always, be sure your monsters are fun, friendly, and unique! What kind of community helpers do you think Murb needs?
