Cardboard Challenge

Look back for a date, a time and guidelines for the 2020 Cardboard Challenge

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation is reevaluating how to hold the 8th Annual Cardboard Challenge following guidelines from the district and local health departments so it is safe for students and their families. 

We miss seeing the creative, innovative and wonderful project from our students and look forward to announcing future plans on when and how we will hold this year's Cardboard Challenge. 

Thank you!


7th Annual Cherry Creek Schools Foundation Cardboard Challenge

2019 Cardboard Challenge Winners


Thank you to everyone who was a part of our 7th Annual Cardboard Challenge event on Saturday, Nov. 16 at Smoky Hill High School. We are so glad that we were able to reschedule such a wonderful event to allow the students at Cherry Creek Schools their creativity and innovative thinking! 

The Cardboard Challenge is a celebration of child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it inspired by the short film, “Caine’s Arcade.” Kids are challenged to create and build using cardboard, recycled materials and their imagination. This provides our students a unique opportunity outside of the classroom to innovate, create and shine! 

Thank you to sponsors Arrow Electronics, Westerra Credit Union, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children and Comcast Xfinity Internet Essentials for providing volunteers and helping make this a free event for all students across the district.
