March Cannon Cardboard Challenge

What will you create?

Cannon Cardboard City Postponed

Due to our current learn from home situation, we have decided to postpone our Cannon Cardboard City Challenge. Instead, we're encouraging you to create anything you want out of cardboard!

The Global Cardboard Challenge

How it all started

Nine-year-old Caine Monroy spent his summer vacation building an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad's auto parts store. The entire summer went by, and Caine never had a single customer at his arcade. Then, on the last day of summer, a filmmaker named Nirvan came in to buy a part for his car. Caine asked Nirvan to play a game, and what happened next inspired the world!

The Challenge

*Cannon scholars will repurpose cardboard and other recyclables into new creations! You can create anything you want. It can be realistic or something from your wild imagination!

*The project will be done entirely at home.


*Scholars may use any recyclables but the primary material should be cardboard.

*There is NO size constraint so the sky's the limit!


*Scholars are limited to using cardboard and other recyclable materials.

Take a picture of your cardboard creation and email it to along with the scholar's first name, grade level, and title of creation
