Ventura High annual Cardboard Boat Race

On Thursday November 16th Ventura High School had their totally awesome, annual Cardboard Boat Race. It is a long-standing, student run, lunchtime activity.

Each team is given a refrigerator box-size piece of cardboard, a roll of duct tape, a yardstick, and a box cutter. They are not allowed to leave their 10‘ x 10‘ area in the parking lot while building their “cardboard boat”

The races then take place in the school pool. Teams try to get their cardboard boat across the pool without sinking! At least 1000 kids were on the pool deck watching the races! Good, clean fun!

Even Principal Carlos Cohen gave it a try.
