Both East and West versions of the Sally Ride 2008 TOYchallenge competitions have now announced grand prize winners. In the East, The Aqua Gamers from Altamonte Springs, Florida won with their board game, Make-A-Splash Pool Game. The game aims to teach swimming pool safety and is waterproof—a feature that could be handy even indoors at my spill-prone game table. In the West, the South Pole Patrol team from Brighton, Michigan prevailed with their project Puff That Penguin!
