A fun competition with a great educational lesson was held Wednesday in the natatorium at Colonel Crawford High School. Students from Colonel Crawford, Crestline, Lucas and Buckeye Central; taking classes in manufacturing, engineering, science, and physics at Pioneer Career and Technology Center; built thirty boats out of cardboard and duct tape, for the fifth annual Cardboard Boat Regatta. Manufacturing and Engineer Teacher Keith Strickler says the students learn how to design and build a boat that will stay afloat, especially considering their weight. Sometimes the boats sink or capsize, but such mishaps make for valuable lessons learned. Winners were selected in four categories, including fastest, best engineered, most creative, and most bouyant.

Overall winning school and winner of the coveted traveling oar was Crestline.
