Contest Timer for 4 Contestants

Back to Contest Timers...

Contest timer for 4 contestants. The moderator has a Green mushroom button and starts the contest. The timer starts running. The contestants compete for the correct answer. There is a red button for each of the four contestants. The contestant hits the red button when he/she has the answer. Indicator lamps in front of the winning contestant lights when the first contestant hits the button. The wall display stops and shows the time. An optional horn or beeper can sound when the first contestant hits the red button. The mushroom buttons are large and easy to operate.

The moderator can use the green mushroom button to reset the time back to zero for your next contest. Once again the moderator will press the green start button to begin the next contest timer event.

This contest timer is setup to use four contestants. My adding additional equipment, any number of contestants can compete.
