Ameritex Movers Alief ISD BoxBot Contest

Ameritex Movers sponsors BoxBot contest at Alief ISD

At Ameritex Movers, we love to be creative and to Think Outside the Box! ... It allows us the opportunity to share this amazing experience with Alief and to spark the imagination and creativity of the kiddos in the community.

Middle school students in the Alief ISD after school program are finishing the summer session with some outside-the-box thinking. Beginning July 10, they will be participating in a contest to see who can design the most creative robot concept out of two cardboard boxes.

Judging begins July 11, with a panel of judges from throughout the Houston community in a variety of leadership positions. There will be an awards ceremony at 2 p.m. July 13 at Alief Middle School to announce the winners. One of the district’s deputy superintendents will be in attendance to present the award.

Participating in the contest are: 24 students from Alief Middle School, 30 students from O’Donnell Middle School, 15 students from Jack Albright Middle School, and 40 students from Killough Middle School. The boxes, as well as hundreds of tickets to the Children’s Museum of Houston, were donated by Ameritex Movers, a local Houston moving company, to kick off the contest.

The contest was inspired by an art installation made by the Ameritex Movers team currently on display at the Children’s Museum. Ameritex’s display is an 8-foot-tall model of the Houston skyline made out of cardboard boxes.

“At Ameritex Movers, we love to be creative and to Think Outside the Box!,” said Ameritex owner Beth Rohani. “That's why the BoxBot Contest is the perfect pairing to our Cardboard City display at the Children's Museum. It allows us the opportunity to share this amazing experience with Alief and to spark the imagination and creativity of the kiddos in the community.”
