If you love everything aerospace and geocaching, this challenge is for you.
The Museum of Flight and Geocaching are having a contest to build the next great geocache. Called the FlightCache Design Challenge, they are now accepting entries for caches that pay tribute to “the wonders of aerospace.” All you need to do to enter is write a one-to-two page proposal and submit it by April 19 via email. Read more about the official rules and how to enter here.
If you are selected, they will help you build it and pay $200 for parts. The winner will receive memberships to both the Museum and Geocaching, a $50 gift certificate and credit on the final geocache at the Museum.
Entries will be judged by private space explorer Richard Garriott de Cayeux, or LordBritish in the geocaching world, Museum staff and Geocaching co-founder Jeremy Irish.
The winning cache will be unveiled at a May 16 event, where LordBritish will also make a special appearance.
