Team members include Cora Ewen, Liberty Benson, Owen Lass, Steven Stadey, Amy Malley and their Captain, Mr. Nault. Also working hard behind the scenes to help the group fundraise and prepare for the trip were Courtney Ewen and Deb McDougall.

For over 20 years, Skills Ontario has been hosting Cardboard Boat Races across Ontario, testing the student’s ability to build a floating structure that will outperform all others in speed and weight challenges.

Both elementary and secondary schools participate - on separate days. Teams of four are provided all the necessary materials to build a boat in just two hours. Students must bring their problem-solving, teamwork and design skills as they create a seaworthy structure out of two sheets of 4' by 8' corrugated cardboard and some duct tape.

Congratulations to all participants and thank you to all who supported this incredible opportunity for students.
