Contest begins to name the world’s longest glass bridge
A contest has began to come up with a name for the world’s longest and highest glass bridge in China’s Hunan province.
The glass bridge, which is built at a height of about 300 meters. More than 70 glass balls, each weighing 750 kg, have been installed randomly to counter sympathetic vibration. The bridge is expected to open to the public before May 2016.
The closing date for entries is February 29, next year and it must represent the name in no more than ten Chinese characters. "Zhangjiajie", "Daxiagu" (Grand Canyon) and "glass bridge" will not be counted.
Whoever comes up with the winning name will be awarded 10,000 yuan ($1,543.4) for each word, will be invited to the opening ceremony and given the title Denominator of Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge, a lifelong honour allowing the winner to visit Zhangjiajie for free for life.
