DUNCAN, OK (KSWO)-  Duncan Area Economic Development Foundation will be hosting their annual Duncan Area Youth Engineering Contest for 7th through 12th grade students on November 14 in the Duncan Middle School Gymnasium. 

“Students have a great time building the race cars and racing them, all while learning valuable skills and earning cash prizes.” Jeannie Bowden, Race Coordinator said, “The cars are CO2 powered and travel down the 20-meter race track in less than 2 seconds.  It’s something to see!”

The contest challenges students to think critically to design, draft, and manufacture a CO2 race car. Students compete for monetary awards in the areas of engineering, the fastest CO2 race car, overall, and people’s choice. High School and Middle School divisions will not compete against one another.  The cars must be completed and turned in by November 3.

For more information on participating or volunteering contact Jeannie at 580.255.9675 or email jeannie@ok-duncan.com.

    An elementary school teacher in Tulsa says her salary has left her so short on cash that she had to panhandle for classroom supplies. Teresa Danks has been an educator since 1996. She says that while it's never been a financially rewarding profession, lately is been getting even harder to get by. She makes around $35,000 a year, with about $3,000 being spent out of pocket for school supplies.
