Carlisle's Winged Knights team came in eighth out of 57 entries in the Red Bull Soapbox Race in Providence on October 13. Over 50,000 people lined the course as Katrina Weiss drove the soapbox down College Hill. Cheering her on were her teammates — her parents Nancy and Mitchell Weiss of Brook Street and her friend Adam Bean of Acton. The family's soapbox project was featured in the Mosquito of October 5.

Both judges declared one of these kindergarten scarecrows to be the winner of the coveted "Special Award" given to the most outstanding scarecrow. All six scarecrows won first place blue ribbons for being best in different categories. Each scarecrow proudly displays its blue ribbon and the comments by the illustrious judges. Four scarecrows will remain on display in the front yard of The First Religious Society. The two kindergarten scarecrows have been returned to the school grounds. The contest organizers did not want to upset the kindergarten teachers and students, nor read about stolen scarecrows in the Mosquito Police Blotter.
