Summer is in full swing and for many of us, this means the State Fair. The essential food item of the State Fair is food-on-a-stick. Here at Instructables, we wanted to combine the fun of food on sticks with the thrill of DIY; thus was born the Stuff on a Stick contest!

From hot dogs to deep fried twinkies, we want to see your best stuff on sticks. Its easy to enter:  just submit your projects featuring food on sticks! We want to see the weirdest, grossest, yummiest and most interesting foods you can imagine - anything, so long as it's on a stick!.

We've got lots of fun prizes, so get started now.  We're excited to see your projects. On sticks!

Multiples entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize International entries are accepted
