MoDOT Tests Bridges, Names Winners of the 11th Annual Bridge Building Competition

Oak Ridge, Ste. Genevieve and Notre Dame High Schools Take 'Top Three'

SIKESTON-After weeks of work to build the most efficient model bridges, Southeast Missouri high school students put their bridges to the test Nov. 20 at the completion of MoDOT's 11th Annual Bridge Building Competition. The competition challenges high school juniors and seniors to design and construct the most efficient model bridge using limited materials-15 pieces of balsa wood, thread and glue.

Oak Ridge, Ste. Genevieve and Notre Dame High Schools received first, second and third place for best overall performance, respectively. These schools received cash prizes donated by the SE Chapter Transportation Employee Association of Missouri.

In addition, five students were recognized for building the lightest bridges that carried the greatest loads.

Winners included:

1st - Tessa Mangels - Oak Ridge

2nd - Gabe Shrout - Oak Ridge

3rd - Andrew DeRousse - Ste. Genevieve

4th - Jessica Hahs - Oak Ridge

5th - Bryan Schaaf - Ste. Genevieve

Other awards included the most aesthetic bridge, presented to Monica Foltz of Notre Dame High School; and the computer-based electronic bridge award presented to Morgan Schenck of Ste. Genevieve High School.
