The Crisp Pringle Challenge
?The Challenge: To mail a single Pringles potato chip, intact.
The Greater Challenge: To have the minimum packaged weight.
?Packaging may NOT include bubble wrap, plastic 'peanuts' or other commercial packing
?The chip must arrive in edible form. This means that the packing material cannot affect the
edibility or taste of the chip in anyway; the chip cannot be poisoned, colored, attached to
anything, etc. (You don't, however, have to weather-proof it...)
-All entries must honor to the spirit of the competition
Packages should be sent via U.S. Mail, standard first class, to:
c/o Prof. Peter Galvin
124 Paterson Ave
Midland Park, NJ 07432-1846
thMAIL YOUR ENTRY ON OR BEFORE Saturday December 8, 2007.
?All packages must be received by Prof. Galvin on Wednesday, December 12th, 2007 to be considered
for credit or prizes. You can take what gambles you choose with the Postal Service.
?All packages must have a return address with your name and home address. Be sure to note your
period next to your name. (e.g Jimmy Joe Bob Smith – A/B Period)
?All packages must have a New Milford, Gaylordsville, or Sherman postmark. It is always a good idea
to have the receipt from the post office as proof that you have indeed mailed the package if it doesn’t arrive to its destination.
?Entries will be opened in school the day before their Winter Break. (December 21, 2007) All entries
will be weighed before opening and a record will be taken as to your chip’s condition.
?The lightest package containing an intact chip will win a class prize. A Grand Prize will also be
awarded to the lightest intact-chip packing job among the various classes participating!

22 pts: Missing part of chip may be covered by a dime
