Design a Chicken Coop, Help Orphans in Uganda

All over town, folks are doing the chicken dance. Last weekend's Tour de Coops proved that -- check out our slideshow if you missed it.

Now you have a chance to show off your design skills in the Poultry Project's Chicken Coop Design Competition. This is a challenging one, folks: You are being asked to design a community chicken coop for use in rural Uganda.

Yep.

But before you dismiss it as too much work, this is for a good cause. The Poultry Project, a U.S.-based non-profit, aims to give HIV/AIDS-affected orphans a chance to become poultry farmers. Cool, huh?

Hey, if you could build a coop designed to weather Phoenix's summers, how hard can this be?

Get all the details here. Better hurry, the deadline is December 31, 2011.
