TWU Holds Sixth Annual
Edible Car Contest
DENTON — Cash
prizes totaling $600 await the winners of the Sixth Annual Edible
Car Contest at Texas Woman’s University.
The contest, April 2,
is open to students in grades 8-12 as well as TWU students. All
contest entries must be made entirely of food edible to humans.
Teams wanting to register
for the competition can do so through March 24. Registration is
$20 per team. For registration materials, visit www.twu.edu/smcw
or call the TWU Science and Mathematics Center for Women at (940)
In previous years, cars
have been made from cucumbers, hot dogs, ice cream cones and even
a loaf of bread. Wheels have been made of pinwheel pasta, cookies
and Moon Pies.
Each team must consist of four members, two of whom must be female
students. Each team may enter one car, and each student may be on
one team only. Entries must look like cars and not exceed design
specifications outlined in the registration packet. All cars must
be able to roll down an eight- to 10-foot ramp on a 20-degree incline,
and the total cost of materials should be less than $10.
Cars will be judged
by Metroplex area engineers. The judging criteria include engineering
design, such as correct size, totally edible, durability and variety
of materials; creativity, such as use of accessories and overall
attractiveness; and speed.
The contest is sponsored
by the TWU Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and the
Science and Mathematics Center for Women.
