Cub Scouts Nadja Gasinski (foreground) and Katie Maggi ride their soapboxes down an incline onto sloping Leonard Place just north of the Evanston Civic Center. The street was closed for four hours so that more than 100 girls and boys could race in the 16th annual soap box derby. “This is just for fun,” said Pat Pint, who coordinates the event. “You get to fly down the hill on a car.” It’s for pack members who are between 5 to 10 years old. Girls first became Cub Scouts in 2018. (Photo by Richard Cahan)
