Sandcastles in October

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Leap’s 29th Annual Sandcastle Contest was held at Ocean Beach in San Francisco on Saturday, October 20. Participants included teams of architects, designers, contractors, corporations, engineers and local elementary school students. The contest is a fundraiser to support Leap’s arts education programs, but admission is free. This year’s theme was things that jump. This year’s “Best in Show,” depicting kamikaze penguins jumping off an iceberg into a shark’s mouth, was built by students at Garfield Elementary School and McCoppin Elementary of San Francisco. Mason Tran is a second-year dental student.
