A Kinetic Sculpture is a human-powered vehicle that also has an artistic theme.
A Kinetic Sculpture Competition is all about fun and ingenuity, making the wackiest, most interesting contraption is the goal- finishing the course or winning is not.
The KKSD is not a race, but rather a design competition and parade celebrating human powered transit and art in Kensington.
Award Categories include- Best Art, Best Costume, Best Engineering, People's Choice, Best Breakdown and a special secret judge award.
People get to vote for their favorite entry at the event.
