Don't bother trying to stump young Sierra Kopachinski with a brainteaser. The clever six-year-old has earned a $600 shopping spree for winning a recent riddle contest. Each of the 22 participating businesses, mostly uptown, had its own riddle as part of the contest. Answers related to something sold in each business, be it a pi-ata or an angel ornament. Of the 22 riddles, young Sierra, who received some help from her parents, had only had two incorrect answers. Contest organizer Leona Kemp said she was pleased with the response to the contest but hopes for more participation next year. The top prize consisted of gift certificates from the participating businesses. Taking home the second prize of $50 in gift certificates from Elite Communications was Sierra's mother, Kandi Kopachinski.
