    Cool little project. Would it be considered cheating if one were to coat all the Popsicle sticks with glue first to give them more rigidity?

    if its like the competition I entered in, you are judged on weight as well, so the glue wouldn't help really. (people tried it, and it does make your bridge stronger but not strong enough)
