-Be honest and original
-Keep it kid friendly (PG) since there will be non-contestants & spectators watching

-Overview of the objectives/rules
-Announcement of the mystery project
-The host and co-host (both makers as well) will provide commentary during the event and do the spectator raffle about halfway through.
-Spectators will be muted but can ask questions through the chat which the host will ask the contestants while they design, cut and build.
More details will be emailed to you once a ticket is purchased. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions! This is gonna be fun!
