They didn’t win the race in Akron, but Stanwood’s Soap Box Derby winners had an awesome family vacation. Ella Conway, 13, won the stock category here in June and Willa Johnson, 14, won super stock. Each won two airline tickets and a hotel room in Akron for a week-long international event at the original home of the All American Soap Box Derby.
Check out the following link to a Stanwood Camano News article for Ella & Willa’s re-cap of the week’s events in Akron leading up to the 76th Annual All American Soap Box Derby:

Drivers, Family and Fans,
Stanwood is indeed a Derby Town. We proved it once again with 63 Soap Box Derby Drivers racing for the opportunity to represent the Stanwood Camano Community at the International Soap Box Derby Race held in Akron Ohio in July. Congratulations and Thank You to all the drivers, families, volunteers and sponsors that made year six of the Stanwood Camano Island Soap Box Derby a wonderful event that we can all be proud of. A special Thank You to the past Soap Box Derby racers that have moved on to other adventures and chose to come back to share their experience and time volunteering at this year’s race.
