Texas Woman’s University will host its 21st annual Edible Car Contest from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday in the Multipurpose Classroom and Laboratory Building, first floor lobby and auditorium, 1314 Bell Ave.

The contest challenges Dallas-Fort Worth area grade school students to combine their creative ideas with math and physics. Students in teams of four (each team has to have at least two girls to compete) build small cars entirely out of edible material.

The resulting cars will be judged in several categories, including ingenuity, mobility and design. The teams also compete against each other for the fastest race times by rolling their cars down an inclined racetrack.

The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Cash prizes totaling $600 will be awarded.
