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:
Scout Obi (inspecting last year’s Grand Prize Winner)
Scout Maggie and Scout Felix
Scout Troublus Maximus
Scout Pete’s Hippie Love Van
Scout Sammy Pilch’s Tardis
Scout Andy McIntyre
Scout Mau (in the CSU Security Vehicle)
Scout Raz’s Food Truck
Scout Timmy Tomcat and Scout Einstein
Scout Gracie and her beautiful balloon
Timmy and Einstein
Scout Obi polishes his Cardwood Derby trophy every day, and it purrvides him with the motivation to build an even more extraordinary ride this year. Will he be able to repeat?
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.
