The WCPCA holds an annual Punkin Chunkin event to raise money for the purposes of youth education and enlightenment in the areas of science and engineering as well as supporting our charity programs. We believe that Punkin Chunkin cultivates the odd, challenging, and competitive quest for distance that inspires creativity, ingenuity, teamwork, and passion. It is this very dedication that drives teams to compete using science and engineering skills and brings spectators to the gate which allows us to continue our never ending thirst to support our scholarship and charitable programs.

For the past 26 years, Sussex County, Delaware has hosted the annual Punkin Chunkin World Championships. For three days, engineers, both serious and home grown, bring their huge contraptions and give it all they've got to chunk their 8- to 10-pound pumpkin as far as it can go. This year's celebration takes place on November 2-4.
