The Golden Hand Truck, typically captured by large universities, was given to Clarke for having the most outstanding load-in and strike crew at the festival. At the festival, the crew had a time limit to construct the set, which was trucked to Ames, and focus lighting. Following the performance, the group had a time limit for striking the set. The award is an actual hand truck that has been painted gold and decorated (complete with lights). It will reside with the Clarke company for the year during which time it will have a decoration or item of interest added to it before being passed along to next year’s award winner.
