“Fast food” takes on a new meaning again this month when Illinois Valley Community College stages its annual Edible Car Contest on February 26 at noon in the cafeteria.

This is the 15th year of the contest, which comes the week after this year’s National Engineering Week. Participants work in teams to come up with creative, workable and edible designs. IVCC students, faculty and staff take part in the fun, as do area high schools.

Last year’s edible-car contest featured 66 entries. Thirty-eight of them came from area high-school and junior-high-school students.

If you’re interested in being part of a whole new kind of meals on wheels, call Dorene Data at (815) 224-0221 or email her at dorene_data@ivcc.edu.
