Paper Airplane Contest

On November 1, 2008, the New York Hall of Science in Queens, New York will be hosting a paper airplane contest. OH HELLS YES.

The following categories will be judged:

  • Distance flown (measured in a straight line from start point to finish point)
  • Duration aloft (measured from time released to time it lands on any surface)
  • Beauty (subjective measurement based on judges’ assessment of both the plane’s physical qualities and the beauty of the flight itself; this category does not depend on distance flown or duration aloft)
  • Spectacular Failure (subjective measurement based on the audience’s assessment of both the plane’s physical qualities and the most spectacular crashes)
  • Children’s division (competition for participants under ages 13)
  • Surprise category

More rules and details here. Don’t ask: No, your radio controlled F-18 model airplane will not qualify.
