Join the Global Cardboard Challenge!

By: Tina Shaffer

The Imagination Foundation is inviting kids, schools, libraries and community organizations around the world to build something amazing out of cardboard, recycled materials and imagination for the third annual Global Cardboard Challenge on October 11, 2014. Inspired by the short film Caine’s Arcade, the event celebrates the power of Creative Play and childhood imagination and the small ways in which adults can help foster them. Just like Destination Imagination, the Imagination Foundation strives to give children an opportunity to explore their dreams, fuel their natural creative abilities, and develop 21st century skills. 
Your mission? In the coming weeks, use your imagination and creativity to construct something amazing out of cardboard and recycled materials. Then, you have the option to either host your own Cardboard Challenge or join one that is open to the public. The Global Cardboard Challenge takes place on Saturday, October 11, so put those keep those creative thinking caps on and get creating!
