The Kidz ‘N Kastles Sandcastle Competition, sponsored and organized by the U.S. Open Sandcastle Committee and the Imperial Beach Optimists Club, took place Saturday, July 23, in Imperial Beach, CA.  Khari Johnson reported on the event in the Imperial Beach Patch.

Highlights:

  • About 20 teams competed in 15’x 15′ plots of sand; all team members were 12 years of age or under
  • Decorations were permitted but had to be biodegradable materials or things found at the beach, like seaweed or seashells. Food coloring was also permitted.
  • Each team of five was accompanied by an adult supervisor who was not allowed to assist in the construction of sand castles or sculptures.
  • Top placing teams won a trophy, a $10 savings account from North Island Credit Union, a gift card for the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, a free haircut at the Hair Force Barber Shop, and a copy of the book When a Dragon Moves In, a story about a little boy, his sandcastle and a dragon.
