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 2017 Global Cardboard Challenge

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.

Cardboard Creations need to be brought to school on Thursday, October 5 and taken home that afternoon

Scholars will participate in a school-wide gallery walk to view the creative creations! The top few creations will be on display during Family Stem Night.
