Can you make a paper airplane that stays in the air longer than anyone else’s? Put your aerospace engineering to the test and learn something new in the process!
- We will accept submissions from June 21 through July 21, 2021 by 9:00 PM.
- To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email should include your name, age, and a link to a video showing the full flight of your paper airplane from take-off to landing. Tip: have someone else film it while you throw it outside.
- The video should be no longer than 1 minute, and should be hosted on your own cloud storage, like Google Drive or Dropbox. Make sure that your sharing setting allows anyone with the link to view your video.

- By entering, you are granting Canton Public Library permission to show your video or link to it on in its website.
- Divisions are based on age: 8 & under, 9-12, and 13-adult.
- Winners will be announced on Aug. 4, 2021 at 5:00pm on our website.
