Team America Rocketry Challenge

The Team America Rocketry Challenge first round will be held today, according to RLV News and the NASA Watch calendar. This is a model rocket competition involving caring for an egg payload and trying for high altitude for middle school and high school students. Scholarships, a trip to the Paris Air Show, and other prizes are up for grabs. The contest site is here. The Aerospace Industries Association site also has a number of pictures and articles about the challenge on the home page, at least at the time of this posting. Here is a PR article about the contest.

The AIA has a comprehensive page with tons of photos and articles about the challenge.
