Communities in Schools co-sponsors the annual Rome-Floyd Cardboard Challenge.
The Cardboard Challenge is a fun, creativity-stimulating, competitive event that is designed for area elementary, middle, and high school students. The Challenge brings together science, math, and innovation. Materials used have to be 100% recyclable materials such as cardboard, paper, plastic bottles or cans. Students compete in the categories of Art, Arcade Games, and Designer’s Choice to find out who can make the best robot, spaceship, or building!
