The virtual version of the Duluth 4-H Puzzle Derby took place the week of May 14-22. There were 196 teams competing in the Derby, from 24 states including Washington DC. The Remote Derby is sponsored by Minnesota puzzle makers PuzzleTwist. PuzzleTwist has been a long time sponsor of the in-person Puzzle Derby. This year's puzzle artwork was created by Duluth artist SJ (Samantha) Nielsen. Her work is well loved by St. Louis County residents and visitors.
The Remote Derby raised almost $1000 for 4-H. Full results, including timed videos, are posted on the Derby Facebook page and at puzzletwist.com. Visit artbysjnielsen.com to view Sam’s art.
The in-person Derby will take place October 22-23 at The Depot in downtown Duluth.
