As we have in the past we are again focusing on a “Lakes” awareness theme for our cardboard boat challenge and Lakes Festival. Each team must name their boat with a Lakes awareness theme, and turn in a short bio explaining the name choice to be announced prior to launch. Register your team, create a boat out of cardboard and duct tape, and race to the finish line. Environmental Exhibitors at the Lakes Festival will provide children’s activities, information on ways to protect our lakes and other environmental fun facts.
This year we will continue a “Pre-Built” category. Teams construct their boats out of corrugated cardboard in advance, and race around the designated course. Judging will be for “People’s Choice” and speed. Pre-Built will be limited to 8 teams.
The other categories will be with cardboard boats built on site that morning. These categories are Family, Community/Corporate, Elementary/Middle School, and High School teams.
This event helps raise awareness about our water resources and how we all must play a role in protecting them. People can reduce their impact on the environment through the lifestyle choices they make every day. Celebrate our lakes and join the fun!
