Evansville Day School is abuzz with preparations for the upcoming Global Cardboard Challenge. This year's theme is "Day School Drive-in: Global CARdboard Challenge". Students are designing, creating, and decorating automobiles out of carboard boxes. The event will culminate in a drive-in movie on Thursday, October 8 in the Traylor Atrium at 2 pm. The students will sit in their "cars" and watch the movie Cars 2 while enjoying popcorn and other snacks.
The Global Cardboard Challenge was inspired by 9 year-old Caine Monroy who spent a summer building an elaborate arcade out of cardboard in his father's used auto-parts store.

Last year, Day School students collaborated on a variety of cardboard creations, including a sinking Titanic complete with an iceberg.
