UNITY, Maine (AP) — Unity College is hosting its Third Annual Cardboard Kayak Race with a challenge to teams to create kayaks using only six supplies.

Entrants in Friday's kayak race can use only cardboard, tape, utility knives, markers, personal flotation devices and a paddle. Teams will spend an hour building the kayaks and then race them on the college's pond. Teams of four people will participate in what the college calls "a true experiential education activity."

Prizes will be awarded for most creative and fastest race time. There will also be an award for most enthusiastic, which is also listed as "most epic fail."
