Remember when your children had more fun with the cardboard box their gift came in than playing with the toy itself?  Armuchee Middle School students showed they can still have fun with cardboard as their projects made from cardboard won them accolades at the annual Rome-Floyd Cardboard Challenge held Saturday.

Armuchee Middle School entered seven projects in the competition and five placed.  All seven were featured in the event's online photo gallery.  
David McLaughlin's seventh-grade Technology Student Association (TSA) class had three groups place as one took first place with the Life-size Operation Game in the Arcade Game category, third-place for King Kong atop the Empire State building in Designer's Choice and fourth-place of The Flying Dragon in the Art category.  

A group from McLaughlin's eighth-period TSA class won second-place in Designer's Choice for a project called Crazy Legs Chicken. 

The eighth-grade class of Heather Boaz won second-place for their mural in the Art category.
