ARKANSAS -- Many boats were on the water at a race in Arkansas. But they're not just any boats -- they're made of cardboard.

The 28th Annual World Championship Cardboard Boat Races took place over the weekend. The race's theme was "Wild and wacky and downright crazy."

The participants delivered -- boats were made to look like everything from sharks to floating cabins to monster trucks.

Awards were given out for the "Most Creative Team and Boat," "The Boat That Floated Best," and "The Most Dramatic Sinking."
