Sink or float: DMS Cardboard Boat Race
Destin Middle School seventh graders had a chance to show their creativity and ingenuity Monday during the 18th Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta at Clement Taylor Park.
As part of a school project, the students formed teams of two to four members, chose a theme, and built a boat and paddles using only cardboard, and duct tape.
Fifty-five boats entered into this year’s competition vying for first, second or third in overall speed as well as best design, best theme, best paddles, and the ‘Davy Jones’ or best sink.
