The ultimate draw for the best artists in the region. This year we would like to offer a large cash prize

to entice artists to give us the most incredibly fun, crazy, and unexpectedly amazing kinetic sculptures and

art cars around! Drawing bigger crowds and unique artists will make your business and Kinetic Derby Day

a household name. The benefits include your logo on large checks presented by a representative of your

business and the Mayor of West Columbia at the presentation ceremony. The cash prize will be referred

to as “ABC business” Cash Prize by the announcer during the sculpture parade, and soapbox racing.

Two All-American Soapbox Derby cars are brought in to the Kids’ Zone for children to race all

day. The Boys and Girls Club will teach them how the steering, axles, and wheels work together

so that children can learn all aspects of the car. The sponsors’ logo will be displayed on vintage cars.

Pit Crew Sponsor $1,000 (2 Sponsorships Available)

Building a custom design with homemade blueprints will probably require some

professional advice before race day and some emergency repairs on the day of the race.

Beyond that, a mechanically inclined pit crew is needed to help get the cars organized for the

racecourse and tow them from the bottom of the hill, back to the top. We will direct participants

with questions to your business before race day, as the local expert, helping you build

relationships in the trenches on race day. You also have the opportunity to host a

“How to Build” workshop promoted by the festival.
