Southern Illinois University originated the Great Cardboard Boat Regatta dating back to 1974.
Since then, the event has not only become a campus tradition but has created thousands of participants worldwide. Each spring, aspiring boaters put their engineering and creativity skills to the test, constructing cardboard creations capable of completing the 200-yard course. Contestants can walk away with a number of awards. The most popular award named the "Titanic Award" in which boaters proudly abandon ship for the mightiest sink.
