A student project announced Sunday night will gather WSU and Pullman residents to beat the world record for the largest rock-paper-scissors tournament ever played.

In addition to attempting to break the record, another goal of the tournament is to raise money for development in technology to help people ailed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

“We wanted to go big. Hopefully we break a record while also raising money for a good cause,” said Kevin Massimino, ASWSU vice president and one of the organizers for this project.

Massimino is organizing this venture as a student for a class group project.

With the current world record at 2,826 participants, Massimino said the goal is to get 3,000 participants and to raise $20,000 for Team Gleason, an organization founded by former NFL safety and WSU student, Steve Gleason.

The event will take place April 19 in Martin Stadium and costs $5 to enter.

The winner of the tournament will receive a cash-prize equivalent of fall 2014 in-state tuition of about $6,000, Massimino said.
