Students invited to register for TWU Edible Car Contest

Registration for TWU’s 14th annual Edible Car Contest currently is under way. The contest, which is open to students in sixth through 12th grades as well as TWU students, will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. March 2 in the Banquet Room of TWU’s Hubbard Hall, located on Administration Drive.

There is a $20 entry fee per team, and the registration deadline is Feb. 24.

Teams consist of four members, of which at least two must be female. All team members are encouraged to attend the event, but at least three team members are required to be present during the event and to claim any prize winnings.

Entries need to resemble cars and adhere to dimensional specifications, outlined at www.twu.edu/arts-sciences/edible-car-contest.asp. Entries must be made of food that is edible to humans.

Cars will be tested and judged by professional engineers on their ability to roll down an inclined ramp, thus testing the durability, design and performance of the car. Other areas judged will be creativity, ingenuity and design. The total cost of materials should not exceed $15.

Cash prizes totaling $600 will be awarded to the winners of the contest.
