EIS Global Cardboard Challenge

Ho Chi Minh City, Asia

Viet Nam

The EUROPEAN International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) is an international day school from Early Years to Grade 12 (Diploma programme) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The school offers programmes for students aged 2 to 18. EIS’ student body is diverse with students coming from more than 25 different countries. It is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School.

This will be our first Global Cardboard Challenge and we are very excited about the opportunity this allows for our students to play and learn by using simple materials to build the things they imagine.

We also look forward to bringing our school community together to foster and develop creativity.

Inviting The World To Play

The Global Cardboard Challenge began in 2012, following the overwhelming success of the short film, 'Caine's Arcade'. In 2017, we hope to surpass 1 million child participants!


Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This September, kids of all ages are invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Saturday, October 7th, 2017, a day that commemorates the flash mob that made Caine's day in the short film, communities come together and play!


Here are a few resources to help you host an awesome Cardboard Challenge.
