2nd Annual LightHawk Paper Airplane Contest

We invite you to enter your best paper airplane design for a chance to have it mailed to thousands in LightHawk’s 2019 Holiday Letter.

  • Folding only, no cutting or adding ballast.
  • Winner will be judged by LightHawk staff and Volunteer Pilots on plane’s distance flown.
  • Submit as many designs as you would like.

How to Submit Your Designs

However you would like! As long as we can figure out how to re-create your design, we’re happy. You can send us written instructions, or a video of you folding it, or mail a couple folded versions to our office that we can reverse engineer.
