Three Wellington County teams competed at the Skills Ontario Elementary Cardboard Boat Race Championships in Waterloo on March 2. The 31 teams in the competition were required to build a boat out of provided cardboard in just two hours. From left: Aidan Derderian, Wade Schnurr, Mason Hill and Ehsan Patel from Aberfoyle Public School placed fourth overall. In the weight challenge the team’s cardboard boat held six students with a combined weight of 323 kilograms (713 pounds) giving them the 10th strongest boat the elementary competition has seen since it began in 1997. The second Aberfoyle team of Caroline Widdecombe, Shaan Uppal, Sean (family name withheld by parent request) and Sebastian Harman-Denhoed placed sixth; and the Erin Public School team of Aaron Lutz, Ryan Shen, Joel Klassen and Alexa Downey placed 21st overall. In the regional competition at Centennial Collegiate Vocational Institute on Feb. 3, a team from Arthur Public school recorded a race time of 16.72 seconds, the 10th fastest time in Elementary Cardboard Race history.  Submitted photo
