The Kootenay Contraption Contest is an annual GLOWS event that invites students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 to imagine, design and illustrate a “contraption” that solves a problem.
Through this contest, GLOWS is encouraging students to use critical thinking skills, design thinking, problem solving, innovation, and develop creative pitch skills!

The Kootenay Contraption Contest is generously sponsored by FortisBC.
