Calling all 5th through 8th graders who like to play with Bubble Wrap. The Bubble Wrap Competition for Young Inventors invites young scientists to exercise their creativity in developing an invention that incorporates Bubble Wrap cushioning. This is the first time the competition has ever been held, and winners will receive up to $10,000 in savings bonds as well as a trip to New York, where the Grand Prize Winner will be announced on Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day – January 29, 2007. Is it just me or did I miss the fact that Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day is actually a holiday? Mark your calendars… I’m taking the day off.
Does anyone have more information on this? I think that it has the makings of a fun television story. I just have to sell my producer on the idea. Ooops… I’m taking the day off.
