The pumpkin contest is now a GREAT PUMPKIN RACE. Make your pumpkin mobile: Add wheels and customize it; decorate it as to “beauty” or horror or mystery; and build it for speed.

Use your mathematics and science skills to make your pumpkin aerodynamic. Pumpkin-mobiles will be raced with one another on a custom track. Entrants will apply concepts of aerodynamics as they build their entries.

Ribbons will be given for first, second and Best of Show. Each pumpkin must have a label with the following information: TYPE OF PUMPKIN, NAME OF ENTRANT, PHONE NUMBER, ADDRESS and THE APPROXIMATE WEIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN.

Time and location to be announced.
