Middle school, high school and college students from around the tri-state will participate in the competition.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place in each age bracket. The event is sponsored by Ivy Tech’s School of Applied Science and Engineering Technology and Alcoa Warrick Operations—Evansville. For more information, individuals may call (812) 429-1479.
