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 shoe had to fit the maker's foot, show creative use of materials and have some complexity in design.

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

A photo gallery showing the shoe designs can be viewed at the district's website,; click on the Duct Tape Shoe Contest link.
