Call for Entries: Canstruction 2012

January 18, 2012

As a charity committed to ending hunger, Canstruction uses one can as a catalyst for change. Canstruction benefits Philabundance, Philadelpia's major food bank, which annually provides 22 million pounds of food to those in need in the region.

Canstruction's fifth annual Philadelphia Design/Build Competition shines a spotlight on hunger while showcasing the Philadelphia design community's best and brightest talents in the Rotunda at the Shops at Liberty Place, 1601 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia.

Think you've got what it takes to design and build a structure created completely with canned food, ingenuity, and hard work? Enter the competition today! For more information and to download the entry form, click here. For up-to-date information, join Canstruction's Facebook page!

Turn on your creativity and help stop hunger, one can at a time.
