Alexandria Distict 206 students showed just how creative they could be at the recent Step Up to Creative Thinking challenge.

Students in grades 1-12 were invited to design and create a shoe using only newspaper, cardboard and duct tape.

The contest is sponsored to highlight Destination Imagination, a creative problem solving competition.
