Become a Rubber Band Contest Sponsor

Become a Contest Sponsor

The Rubber Band Contest presents sponsors with a unique opportunity to gain national exposure, while supporting an educational outreach effort that is designed to encourage children to develop a love for learning, discovery and creativity.

Each year, students from across the nation stretch their imaginations by taking on our challenge: to design and create a working invention or artwork that incorporates at least 1 rubber band. The contest was created in 2008 by the Akron Global Polymer Academy (an outreach division of the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at The University of Akron) as a way of drawing students into the world of STE(A)M education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics).
