Polytechnic campus boat races

One team will be crowned the boat race champion for the Polytechnic campus, with first, second, and third place winners for the fastest times … assuming we have 3 finishers!

Other prizes awarded will be:

  • Pride of the Regatta (Most creative design and best use of corrugated cardboard)
  • Best Dressed Team (The costumes may be funny, spiffy, or elegant … but they must be creative!
  • Team Spirit Award (Most Spirited and best organized team … the looks of the boat don’t count here!
  • Titanic Award (Most spectacular sinking … to qualify you must salvage the remains completely!

May the best boat float!

Other ways you can help:

  • Do you have cardboard in your area that you don’t need? Send it our way for boat teams to use.
  • Looking for six faculty/staff members to serve as a judge at Boat Races from 4–6 p.m.
