The Salvation Army is holding the 2012 record bell ringing contest. Bell ringers nationwide are encouraged to enter the contest to challenge the world record for the longest continuous hand bell ringing by an individual at a Red Kettle.

The contest is set to begin on December 11, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. (CT). Ringers will seek to best the previous record of 60 hours, set in 2011.

Contestants must stand the entire time, ring the bell continuously, and must be Army bell ringers.

This year, contestants may eat and drink non-alcoholic beverages, but only during approved breaks.

The deadline to enter is Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 7 p.m. CT.

Contestants must sign-up as bell ringers with their local Salvation Army. In Omaha you can call 402-898-6000.
