The Ocean Isle Beach Family Sand Sculpture Contest will be from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, August 30th, on the beach behind the Ocean Isle Beach Community Center, at 44 E. First St.
The contest is sponsored by the Ocean Isle Property Owners Association and the Museum of Coastal Carolina
Participants can enter a choice of one of two divisions—family or children. Teams in the family division can have up to four adults and an unlimited number of children.
Participants in the children’s division must be 13 or younger and have no help from anyone older. Both divisions are instructed to have fun.
Sculptures can be of anything and can be used with natural materials found on the beach. Items can be found prior to the competition. Sculptors are asked to bring their own tools but are reminded to take them home at the end of the competition.
Sculpting cannot begin before 10:30 a.m. Judging will take place at 1 p.m. Sculptures will be judged on originality, quality of work and group fun. Trophies and prizes will be awarded for all divisions.
Sculptures can be left after the competition, but participants are asked to fill in any large holes. Remember to stay off the dunes at all times.
