PULLMAN, Wash.--Thousands of Washington State University students planned to attempt to break the world record for the largest rock, paper, scissors tournament in April.
The current Guinness World Record standing is 2,826 participants.
The tournament costs $5 for students to register. Organizers hope to raise $15,000 to go towards Team Gleason to assist Cougar Alumni Steve Gleason and the continued fight against Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
The funds will be donated to a group of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science students from WSU Team Gleason to further develop the communication technology used by ALS patients.
The tournament is on April 19 at 5:30 p.m. and will take place in Martin Stadium. The tournament is for current WSU students.
The WSU Sport Management department is partnering with several campus and community sponsors to offer a grand prize of fall 2014 tuition, along with nearly $20,000 in other prizes.
