Broome Junior Masters competition winner announced
Elliot Rutherford is the proud owner of a snazzy UHF kit, among other prizes, after winning the Broome Advertiser’s Broome Junior Masters competition.
For his sixth birthday party Elliot wanted a Death Star (from Star Wars) pinata.
To create it he needed to inflate a spherical balloon by mixing bicarb and vinegar, which he said he knew how to do from his dinosaur days creating volcanoes, in a bottle and putting a balloon on top.
After the balloon was inflated Elliot was able to apply the paper mache and create the Death Star.
His efforts have earned him a hamper of prizes, including a $200 Shop Local Broome gift card, a one year pass to the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre, a pair of earbuds, a Mitre 10 builders bucket, a Reef Chief Shirt, a handful of McDonalds vouchers and a UHF Kit.
Speaking to the Broome Advertiser, Elliot said he was excited to use the UHF radios with his siblings around the house, while he was happy to use the McDonald’s vouchers to pay for his dad’s coffee.
