More than 200 children took part in a quiz which was organised by a mum to beat holiday boredom and boost trade.
Hannah Warner, a mother of three who lives in Empingham Road, Stamford, organised the Hidden Article competition which challenged youngsters to find items in shop windows that shouldn’t be there.
It took place between October 20 and November 3, and 28 shops took part.
Hannah hoped the scheme would encourage parents to go in shops they perhaps hadn’t visited before as well and she said it had been so successful, she hopes to run it again next year.
She said: “All the shops were really enthusiastic but some were more sneaky at hiding the item in the window.
“More than 200 children took part and 69 found all the answers.”
The three winning youngsters picked up their prizes on Monday night.
The winner was six-year-old Cerys Edwards, who got £100. Owen Brooks, 10, got £50 and Emma Wheeler, five, received £25. They all got a gift bag from Stamford Arts Centre.
Janet Sears, from the tourist information centre which sold quizzes, said it had been well received.
She said: “We had such a lot of positive comments.”
Hannah thanked the tourist information centre and Bubble and Squeak, which sold quizzes.
