The competition is open to students and professionals. There is no entry fee to participate, but you need to register hereYou'll get your materials scavenger-hunt style. Go to one store, such as Lowe's and spend $25 or less. You will also need a lightbulb and light fixture, neither of which count toward your $25 spending cap. Let's see what you can do! Please see below for examples:
