    Airplane Design and Flight Contest

    The Amelia Earhart Elementary School invites all students to participate in our annual airplane contest.  This event promotes student creativity and campus-wide engagement.  TK - 5th grade are invited to participate in the Airplane Design contest and Kinder - 5th grade are invited to participate in the Airplane Flight contest.  Each grade level is awarded first, second, and third place prizes in both the design and flight contests.  Kindergarten flight contest will take place in the kindergarten yard.

    The airplane design contest allows for your child to use their imagination and creativity to design an airplane from scratch.  Past participants have designed airplanes with recycled household items, art supplies, and have even designed airplanes using baked goods.  The design contest entries are not meant to fly; instead, these entries are intended to explore the student's imagination and creative side.  The only restrictions are as follows: no airplane kits, no airplane made from patterns, no model airplanes, and no LEGO airplanes.  Please be creative with materials you use and please have fun.  

    The airplane flight contest allows for your child to use their creativity in designing a paper airplane that can travel the greatest distance.  Each grade level will compete to determine 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.  There are no restrictions on designing a paper airplane and each child will use the same paper size, type, and weight.  

    The airplane contest provides a wonderful opportunity to engage with our amazing students and teachers in a fun filled afternoon.  Parent volunteers will be needed on May 24th for the airplane flight contest to help mark and measure.  The volunteer opportunities are as follows:
