Is There a Cardwood Derby Trophy in Your Future?

March 22, 2017 |

Cats across the globe are madly ordering cardwood boxes from Amazon in an attempt to build the winning vehicle in this year’s Cat Scouts Cardwood Derby.

Competition is friendly, but fierce. At stake is a purrsonalized trophy, the envy of your peers, and eternal fame.

Rules are simple. You must design and build a vehicle (any kind of transportation vehicle — no limitations!) whose base is made of a cardboard box (or boxes). Then, you must enter your vehicle and pose for a photo. (This last requirement usually keeps a couple of scaredy cats out of the contention for the gold!)

Judging is based on a combination of pawpular vote, and the final selection by a celebrity judge. Last year’s celebrity judge was Animal Planet’s Andrea Arden, who was blown away by the quality of the entries. Here are just a few of the entries from previous derbies:

PRIZES

The grand prize winner gets a purrsonalized trophy. Runners-up get purrsonalized medals. All competitors are eligible to enter to win fabulous prizes (winners chosen at random during the competition) from the Cat Scouts Superstore.

Every scout who enters gets 1000 karma points and a merit badge.

HOW TO ENTER

You must be a Cat Scout to enter. Membership in Cat Scouts is free. If you’re not already a Scout (and you are not a hooligan), you can register here. Starting on April 1st, you’ll be able to post your photo on the Cat Scouts site in the Cardwood Derby 2016 Group.

Good Luck!
