Ahoy, Mates! Campbell High School And Mililani Middle School Take First Place In The 12th Annual Meadow Gold Milk Carton Regatta
Meadow Gold Dairies of Hawaii’s 12th Annual Milk Carton Regatta had 33 boats participating from across Oahu competing for prizes. But it was teams from Campbell and Mililani that took home first-place honors, $500 Best Buy gift certificates, and other prizes.
The Milk Carton Regatta gives students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in science and industrial arts classes in a real-world project by designing, building, testing and racing a boat made almost entirely of milk cartons. Students built and raced two-person boats they built using Meadow Gold and/or VIVA half-gallon milk cartons, glue and lots of tape. The Milk Carton Regatta also provides an enjoyable way for students to learn about teamwork and develop school spirit, while learning about the health and nutritional value of Meadow Gold dairy products.
