Sandcastle Enthusiasts Vie for Best Castles and Scoops

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH -- The country's future architects and designers set up shop in the sand on Wrightsville Beach Saturday morning for the eighth annual sandcastle contest.

Teams worked to craft their own special sand designs at the Castles and Scoops competition outside the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort.

WECT's Jim Hanchett was one of the judges in the contest.

Proceeds from the registration will benefit the Wilmington Children's Museum.
