    How does that happen?

    Easily. Patty’s teacher might have expactations of low performance from her, so subconsciously is harder on Patty’s work than on others’. Or she has some pet foibles that Patty violated but which the judges of the competition didn’t care about. She might even actually dislike Patty and grade her harder on purpose. (This happens in real life, at least. Maybe not in Peanuts.)

    I think Patty’s winning the contest was nothing but pure SARCASM—her teacher’s PRECISE way of making fun of Patty for constantly being so lazy—fallling asleep in class and barely passing her tests and courses(D minuses, of course.) Of course, her winning the contest may have even been a result of her getting SO MANY D minuses, it was like,“This time, she really did it!” Either way, sarcasm on her teacher’s and the judges’ parts, would have added up, in my opinion.(and of course, that’s where the PUNCH LINE, of the cartoon, would come in—getting a lousy grade on a homework assignment, and yet winning first prize for it.)
