Where:  Online

For 15 years Hudson Crossing Park has proudly hosted the Annual Cardboard Boat Races, challenging builders of all ages to build a boat that will carry them across the Hudson River and back (or not). This year, unable to host the races due to COVID-19, we have decided to carry on the cardboard tradition with a twist: instead of boats, we’re building bridges!

This contest will be held virtually.

Participants are challenged to build a bridge of any style that successfully fulfills the contest requirements.

Enter with a video submission (up to 10 minutes) describing your build process and demonstrating the strength of your bridge by fully crossing the span and standing on it for at least one minute. Entries must be received by no later than 5pm on August 23, 2020. Email entries to

Sadly, the in-person portion of this event has been canceled.
