The Awana Grand Prix™ is a Pinewood-Derby®-style racing event with a nearly 50-year track record of fun and excitement.
Awana Grand Prix is more than just building a race car. It helps to build a bond between kids and their parents as they work together to design the best car ever. Dads especially will be drawn into the creative excitement of helping their sons and daughters win.
And winning is what it's all about. Not only winning the race – but winning moms, dads and kids to Christ! The event provides churches with the perfect place to present the gospel message.
The Awana Grand Prix was the tool that God used to draw one dad to salvation. He is now my right-hand man in ministry and the game director for our club. I just wanted to put a plug in for the value of the Awana Grand Prix to reach dads and men. An Awana commander
The kids love seeing their cars race across the finish line, and even the parents get into it, too! All the children got a ribbon for their hard work! It was so much fun! Parent of an Awana clubber
Churches can host car-building days, or families can work on their models at home.
Kids invite their families to see them race on the day of the big event. The cars race on a wooden four-lane track. Awards are given for both design and speed. Clubs award first-, second- and third-place trophies for each category. Each participant also receives a ribbon.
Everyone gets to hear about the greatest prize of all when a speaker shares the gospel of Jesus Christ.
