# The Wise Owl Christmas newsletter competition

This month's competition is another logic puzzle.  Five boys compete in a local race to raise money for charity; each chooses to run in fancy dress.

Your friend reports on the race afterwards, but can only remember 6 things about it:

1. Bud beat the person who raised least money, but was beaten by Dracula.
2. The boy who raised the most money was dressed as an animal.
3. The owl (naturally!) won, although he didn't raise the most money.
4. Baz raised twice as much as the boy in last place, who wasn't the nurse.
5. Bill beat Ben by three places, although they both beat Bob.
6. Dracula, the fridge and the nurse between them raised less money than Bud did on his own.

Complete the grid to show the finishing order of the boys, who raised which amounts of money and the costume each was wearing:
