Bao Bao Beats Smithsonian Competitors in #SIShowdown

Perhaps the biggest local Twitter battle in the last week is now officially over. Giant panda cub Bao Bao has emerged victorious in the Smithsonian Summer Showdown or #SIShowdown.

The Smithsonian National Zoo tweeted on Tuesday, "Bao Bao got an early B-day present; she's been crowned "most iconic at the @Smithsonian #SIShowdown. Thanks to everyone for voting!!"

who turns 1 year old on Saturday, beat out 24 contenders to be named the "most iconic in the Smithsonian." She swept the science category, and challenged the Star Spangled Banner Flag, the Landsdowne portrait of George Washington, and the Woody Guthrie song "This Land is Your Land" for the title.
