Scholarship Barrel Race

The scholarship tasks the seniors to team up in groups of three to build a contraption that will be pushed, pulled, pedaled or carried through a barrel race during the festival. The participants are judged on their creativity exemplifying the theme of a “Turkey” and their time to complete the barrel race. The grand prize is a $500 scholarship per team member. Entries must be registered by Wednesday, April 17, 2013. Turn in entries at the Caboose or email Betty at email@example.com.
