Faculty, staff and students compete in Great Paper Airplane Contest

Several teams and individuals had dozens of paper airplanes flying through New Main’s Great Hall on April 20. Ron Miller, building services, is responsible for organizing and putting on the event.

“It started six years ago. Thought we were getting away with something. Then Thomas Maida said it could be a real event and we came out from the shadows,” Miller said. Maida is the safety and security director with building services.

Each participant was allowed three throws with the furthest distance winning. Prizes were awarded in bookstore credit and a trophy.
