Most Creative- The Trishy Hay Memorial Trophy
This category is in memory of Patricia Hay. No one loved a kooky community event more than Trish. She was also incredibly creative. Hence, we encourage people to get as creative as possible. This category is completely open to interpretation and is open to all billy carts- whether they race or not. Anything goes!
Additionally, carts deemed unsuitable/too dangerous for racing can be entered into this category and still go home with a prize. Carts may be designed with this category in mind, and not be designed to race at all.

Most Awesome (People’s Choice)
This trophy will be determined on the day by the volume of the crowd’s enthusiasm. Bring it on.

Most Salvaged
This category is sponsored by The Salvage Yard and will be judged on the best use of recycled/second hand materials. This is in the tradition of billy carts- making something out of nothing.
