**Contest for Young Partisans, 17yrs or younger**

Tune into the John Jacob Schmidt show on December 17th, 2017 at 2000 hrs. PST to hear a broadcast from Little Orphan Annie. Annie will read out a list of numbers that you must copy down exactly. (If you miss the live broadcast you can get them from the Podcast the next day.) You must decode the message using Conversion Table and the One Time Pad “NATIVITY“.

Hint: Listen to Episode 17-38 if you are unable to locate the OTP "Nativity" in this posting.

The decoded OTP message is the address of a secret location. Enter it into the search box of Google Earth or Google Maps. Take a careful look around to see what is at that location for your report back to headquarters. Keep your work neat and double-check your addition to make sure you get the correct message.

Let John Jacob Schmidt know what you found by emailing him at: with the subject line of “Red Ryder.” In the email, report what you found at that location. Be sure to include your code name in your email.

All correct answers will be entered into a drawing for a Special Edition Red Ryder BB Gun and other prizes that will be announced. All entries must be received by Midnight on December 19th, 2017.

BONUS: Once you find the location, use the “Street View” icon to take a tour inside!


For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11
