MIASF held a Battle of the Boats design competition with students at New River Middle School as a consolation for them not being able to participate in Plywood Regatta this year due to coronavirus restrictions. Dozens of students submitted their designs and were judged against a matrix of superlatives: most likely to succeed for the boat with the most realistic design for the type of boat chosen, best decorated for the boat that looked best in design or decoration, most creative for the boat made with the most creative materials, and best overall for the student that went above and beyond in all areas of the project. And the winners are: 

Most likely to succeed: Kevin Ricks

Best decorated: Gabriel Argueta

Most creative: Max Edwards

Best overall: Cristina Baños
