Synopsis for "The Great Batman Contest"

Batman holds a contest with a scholarship award to any high school student who can invent the most useful “bat-weapon.” To pick the winner, he uses the four finalists’ inventions while fighting crime.

Batman receives four new inventions and he decides to test them while capturing some criminals. The first three inventions have different drawbacks and are discarded by the Dynamic Duo. When the time comes to use the fourth inventions, Batman and Robin are pleased with the "Bat-Kite", as it helps them on surveillance and can also be used to fight crooks. Jeff Keating is awarded with the scholarship to study ciminology and the Dynamic Duo have a new Bat-Weapon for their arsenal.
