Snowman Left Behind: Huskies Go for Guinness World Record
A new world record is at stake on Saturday (Feb. 10) when Michigan Tech students attempt to build more than 2,036 snowmen in one hour. They’re asking campus and community to help.
The attempt, officially registered by the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) with Guinness World Records, requires exact specifications and documented evidence. Each hand-made snowman (no tools, no advance preparation) must be at least three feet high, composed of three separate balls of vertically balanced snow, with two eyes, a nose and two arms.
USG will provide biodegradable eyes and noses and wooden arms, says events committee chairman John Nowosad. Independent witnesses will be Houghton City Manager Eric Waara and Carl Blair, a senior lecturer in history and archaeology at Michigan Tech.
