Thomas wins edible car contest

Tryon Elementary School held its 2012 Edible Car Contest for the fifth graders on June 4. Shelby Thomas of Tryon (center) created the winning car, constructed the night before the contest from rice cakes, fudge stripe cookies, gummy life savers, french bread, spaghetti and hot tamales. This car was her second creation; the first, made out of a potato, fell apart. Thomas is shown here with her teacher, Mrs. Sharpe (left), and her science teacher, Mrs. Corcoran, who said the winning car went farther than any car has ever gone in the contest.
