SE Schools Encouraged to Participate in MoDOT’s 11th Annual Bridge Building Competition

Registration Deadline: Sept. 9

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) is sponsoring its 11th annual bridge building competition for high school juniors and seniors in the Southeast District. The competition challenges students to design and construct the most efficient model bridge using limited materials—15 pieces of balsa wood, thread and glue.

Schools must register by Sept. 9 to compete in the competition. Contest information and registration forms have been mailed to area high schools. If a school is interested in participating and has not received the registration paperwork by Aug. 30, they are encouraged to contact MoDOT.

The bridge kits will be delivered to the participating schools on Oct. 6 and 7. Completed bridges will be picked up from participating schools on Nov. 3 and 4.

Bridges entered in the competition will be tested Nov. 20 at Cape West 14 Cine in Cape Girardeau. The lightest bridge to carry the greatest load will ultimately be declared the winner. Prizes will also be awarded for the most aesthetic bridge and to the winner of the electronic bridge competition.
