Contest Winners

Our annual Rube Goldberg Machine Contest® invites people of all ages to imagine, build, film, and submit their working machines designed to complete a simple task. Each September since 1988 we announce the annual task, rules, deadlines, and prizes. Our contests are free and the machines cost nothing to build. All you need is a pile of junk and a great imagination. 

The judges have voted and here they are! The most creative, most fun, and most Rube-inspired submissions for this year's Rube Goldberg Machine Contest®.
