Cardboard boxes will be transformed into rocket ships, giant cheeseburgers and other whimsical sleds for Northwood Children's Services' third annual Art Sled Rally, 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 21, on the hills of Duluth's Ridgeview Country Club, at 700 W. Redwing St.

The Art Sled Rally is open to kids, families, church groups, schools, businesses and anyone else who wants to have wintertime fun. An "art sled" is any kind of sled that starts as a cardboard box and is decorated to be whatever you want. The only limit is entrants' imagination and as many sled riders as you can pile into the box and slide down the hill.

"We encourage kids, and adults who still want to be kids, to think inside the box while having a lot of fun, both while they're making their sleds and then while steering them down the hill," said Kathleen Wolleat, Northwood Children's Services' marketing director.

Free hot chocolate, coffee and cookies will be provided to participants and spectators. Awards will be presented for Best in Show (most spectacular sled), Great Spirit (where enthusiasm matters more than appearance) and Corporate Challenge (best company representation).

Entry fee is $25 per team ($50 per business team), and all proceeds will help fund programs at Northwood Children's Services. There is no charge to attend as a spectator.
