1st Runner Up: Nano TARDIS by Dale of Tulsa, OK!
The Tardis has gone to another time-space dimension, the nano-world. The Universe’s smallest Tardis was made at The University of Tulsa by the Nanotechnology Institute’s Micro and Nano Fabrication Laboratory. A beam of gallium ions within the scanning electron microscope was used to mill the Tardis on a human hair freeing the Doctor for his tiniest, but one of his most interesting adventures ever. Accompanying him on this adventure were Paige Johnson, the Nano- Lab Manager; Dr. Michael Keller, an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and Dale Teeters, Professor of Chemistry.
See a video of finding the Tardis on the hair:

2nd Runner Up: TARDIS of San Francisco by Emilia of San Francisco, CA!
I had to make four prototypes before I could build the full scale model. It took about a month to draw up the cut map, make the pieces, glue them together and put together the electric bits. I finished the model in January but it took me a long time to get the photo at the bridge taken.
I enjoyed every step building my Tardis!
Awesome job, Emilia!
We are just two days away from announcing the grand prize winner in the Where’s The TARDIS contest! Watch this blog for more of our finalists and stay tuned to the Saturday broadcast of ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ on Saturday.
4th Runner Up: Pinewood Derby TARDIS by Jason of Uxbridge, MA!
Two TARDISES built to run in a pinewood derby for cub scouts. The first Tardis was overweight and the second smaller TARDIS ended up being made to actually run. It did come in first in one of its races. Although not really built for speed it does hold its own.
Also can you think of a better place to have a TARDIS? When i first had it there many kids were asking what it was (even a few parents) now I know if we do get the screening in our area many who go will be cub scouts. I think it would be pretty cool to turn a new generation onto The Doctor and his cub scout blue TARDIS.
That’s ok Jason — who needs to win every derby when you can travel all of time and space!
All this week we are counting down the seven finalists in the Where’s The TARDIS contest with the grand prize winner revealed during the Saturday BBC America broadcast of ‘A Good Man Goes To War’. The grand prize includes all 47 years of Doctor Who *plus* an exclusive premiere screening in their hometown!
6th Runner Up: Gingerbread Tardis by Alex of Marquette, MI!
The gingerbread Tardis is a Tardis made entirely of edible materials by my aunt and me during my winter break from University. Everything was constructed with homemade gingerbread and homemade icing, and decorated with homemade and gel icings, as well as m&ms, chocolate for the doctor’s suit and hair, and a gumdrop for the light.
Yummy work, Alex!
All this week we will be counting down the seven finalists in the Where’s The TARDIS contest! On Saturday we will reveal the grand prize winner who will receive all 47 years of Doctor Who *plus* an exclusive premiere screening in their hometown!
