Sponsoring the Eastern New England - Arlington Soapbox Derby

Thank you for interest in sponsoring the ENE  Arlington Soap Box Derby. As a non-profit organization, we thrive solely on your generosity and support. Please consider the benefits of sponsoring this youth-oriented program:

Position yourself with a positive youth initiative that builds goodwill and favorable community relations. By sponsoring "The Greatest Amateur Racing Event in the World" you show residents, city agencies, local elected officials, and the media that you care about Eastern New England’s youth. Leverage this goodwill through public relations opportunities at the local, city, state, and national level.

At the All-American Soap Box World Championship, held in July in Akron, Ohio, you can reach as many as 25,000 children and adults repeatedly over a week-long period, and benefit from national coverage of the event by Sports Illustrated, the SPEED channel, ESPN, USA Today, and other media outlets.
