The Friends of the Rudisill Regional Library, Woodrow Street Hobbies, Liberty Baptist Church and Top Shelf Models will present the 1/25-scale Model Car Show and Competition, 1-4 p.m. Jan. 21 at Rudisill Regional Library, 1520 N. Hartford Ave.
The competition is free and open to individuals 5 and older, and participants can register their entries on the day of the event.
Categories are divided by age: 5-11, 12-16, and 17-adult. Participants can also compete in professional, hydraulics or parent/child categories.
New this year will be a Classic Car Exhibit in the library's parking lot, featuring real versions of many of the models displayed at the competition.
Bobby Kendrick, president of Woodrow Street Hobbies, said the parent/child category is also a way for families to bond.
"It's building solid memories between a parent and their children," he said. "Model building also teaches a person that if you follow a set of instructions, you will get a worthwhile finished product for your efforts."
Winners in each category will receive trophies. No premanufactured cars are allowed, except in the hydraulics category.
Tulsa City-County Library features many resources, including books, periodicals and DVDs, for all skill levels of model making.
For more information, call Kendrick at 918-698-0486.
