  • No sand may be added or removed from the work area.
  • Extra water to wet sand is permissible.
  • Tools and forms of any sort may be used in the process of construction, but may in no way support the sculpture.
  • Only sand, water, shells, and other natural beach materials can be used to decorate your sand sculpture.
  • Any materials left on the beach MUST be 100% non-toxic, biodegradable and earth-friendly.
  • Children’s category: One adult may assist with initial digging, not with sculpting.
  • Sorry, no refunds on registration fees or preorders of t-shirts.
  • Pro hint: The judges watch for how much fun your team is having and how much you’re entertaining the crowd, as well as judging your completed sculpture!
