Should work pretty well, though I can picture an amusing failure:

I could see the tongue depressors catching fire and the bot needing to be 
extinguished. :)
Do you still get points for putting the candle out if the bot catches fire?

What about a spray bottle, and pump water out on the wide spray setting?
A servo could work the pump trigger.  A plastic rain coat may be needed on 
the front of
the bot to prevent electical problems.
