Time: 2pm- 4pm

Cost: 3 per Beaver

Each Colony may enter up to two teams of three Beaver Scouts, 7 years and above.

The Beavers must attend in uniform, with old t-shirt to wear while working.

The challenge will be that each team must make a junk model based on a story, which they are told. After listening to the story the teams will have ten minutes to plan what they are going to make. One hour to make their model and fifteen minutes to clear up. They will then be expected to tell the other teams about their model and why they made it.

Most of the materials and equipment will be there but each Colony will be expected to bring junk, scissors and also something to put down to make model on to protect the floor.

The winner of the competition will be the team who scores the most points. The second highest score will be second etc. Points will be awarded by an independent judge in the following categories.

* General behaviour during the Challenge

*Planning the making of the model

*Actually making the model

* Team work

* Interpretation of the story and appropriateness of the model

* Clearing up afterwardsThe teams taking part will also award points for the quality of the models made by other teams at the challenge.

A Leader / Adult will be required to accompany the teams and be available to assist.
