Fire & Ice Cardboard Sled Contest in Plymouth

New Feature: Cardboard Sled Contest

A new highlight this year, Fire & Ice will feature a children’s cardboard sled contest, set for 4 p.m. on the Showmobile Stage. Children are encouraged to create and decorate cardboard sleds and bring them to Fire & Ice to enter in the contest. Participants are asked to check-in at 3:45 p.m.

Children can design and build a person-powered cardboard sled to show off at Fire & Ice. The contest in not a race – sleds will be judged based on design and spirited participants.

Participants may enter the contest individually or as a team. Teams may include up to four children per sled, and each participant on the team must fall under the same age category. 

  • Only cardboard can be used, and must be held together with tape or glue
  • Due to limited space on the stage, finished sleds should be no larger than 6 feet long, 3 feet deep and 4 feet wide
  • Sleds must be free of sharp edges and pointy objects
  • Sleds should not be wrapped in plastic, tape, shrink wrap or anything else
  • For the safety of all contest participants, please do not use any nails, plastic, screws, staples or mechanical fasteners

Prizes will be awarded for the best design and best spirited team. First- and second-place winners from multiple age categories will be selected to win prizes. Categories include: 

  • Preschool, ages 5 and younger
  • Youth, ages 6-8
  • Youth, ages 9-12
  • Teens, ages 13-18

Weather permitting, children can test out the sleds on the hill after the contest has concluded.
