The Winning Holland-Chatsworth Team
Forty teams from across Ontario competed in the Skills Ontario Cardboard Boat Race Championships in Waterloo, March 1st - 2nd (2016).
Skills Ontario gave teams two hours and the materials they needed to build a cardboard boat to out-perform their peers in speed and weight challenges.
After two hours of building and eight heats of races each day, the winners of the Elementary (March 1) and Secondary (March 2) Skills Ontario Cardboard Boat Race Championships were declared:
Elementary Student Championship:
