Well folks, we can’t have a Preston & Steve Cardboard Classic this year due to the pandemic, but a few of the ‘regulars’ have reached out to us to with their plan to keep up the spirit of the event.

They’re going to build smaller sleds but with all the love and creativity of their normal cardboard creations! Please note that this contest is for fun and bragging rights! To keep up with traditions, our official cardboard trophy maker and sponsor, Acme Corrugated Box, will provide a keepsake for the winner.
