Coney Island’s Sand Sculpting Contest is free of charge to compete for prizes, enjoy day-long entertainment, and visit information tables/booths. The amateur sculptors, coming from Coney Island and beyond, will compete in five categories: Individual Adult, Individual Child, Adult Group, Child Group, and Mixed (Children and Adults). First, second, and third place winners in each category will be awarded generous cash prizes—$400, $200, and $100. Artists and leaders from the Coney Island community will serve as judges, examining each sculpture and then reaching a consensus on the winning creations.
