True Contenders Fold In Paper Plane Contest

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It takes major folding skills to get a plane ready for take-off.

The New Millennium Paper Airplane Contest is landing in the New York Hall of Sciences tommorrow (Nov. 1), where more than 100 contestants will bend over backwards to create the coolest, most creative paper plane.

Spokesperson Rochelle Steiner says many skills are handy when it comes to making paper planes, but awesome folding abilities can give contestants a definite advantage.

She says, “An engineer may know how to get the plane to catch the wind so it flies longer, but someone who does origami can make it look amazing.”

Luckily, judges will be awarding planes with flying abilities, sleek looks, and even those who crumple under pressure in the spectacular failure competition, where the biggest dud of a plane takes the prize.

Though it promises to be a safe and fun event, Steiner admits there’s one major danger folders will encounter.

She jokes, “Paper cuts are an occupational hazard. We’ll have paramedics on stand-by.”
