Friday, October 4, 2013 - 9:00 - 11:30 - Clock Tower Allendale Campus
The Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual initiative of the Imagination Foundation. Inspired by the short film, "Caine's Arcade," the Cardboard Challenge is a worldwide celebration of child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This year's Challenge aims to engage 1 million kids in 70 countries in creative play! In the month of September, kids will design and build something out of cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on October 4-6th, 2013, the anniversary of the flash mob that came out to make Caine’s day in the "Caine's Arcade" short film, friends, family, and community members will come out to local events to celebrate the creativity and imagination of kids everywhere. The Cardboard Challenge started in 2012 with over 270 Challenge events organized in 41 countries; kids used their events to raise tens-of-thousands of dollars for various causes, including local food banks, community gardens, library and school programs, childhood cancer research, and the Imagination Foundation
