Mr. Lowen and his tree. He also won chopsticks, martini glasses and a rat trap.

Congratulations to 2008 Unreal News Challenge winner Allen Lowen.

Lowen dropped by the RFT offices last week to pick up the incredible prize package he earned for scoring 96 out of 100 on Unreal's annual news quiz. (You can still take the test here, just don't expect us to grade it. Answers are available here.)

An administrator with Westminster College, Lowen says his biggest challenge now is coming up with an appropriate gift value for his income taxes.

Sounds like a difficult task. I'm no appraiser, but I'd say that XXX-mas tree we used for a Chris Duncan cover last year is priceless. That, or worth perhaps a buck fifty.
