The 2001 CANstruction fight against hunger is set to take
place on March 24th at the Holiday Village Shopping Center.
Families, clubs and organizations are encouraged to
participate by building a structure out of non-perishable
food items. Teams must turn in a registration form to the
Havre Food Bank by March 16.
Each sculpture space is 8' by 10'. Sculptures must be made
primarily from canned or dry goods. You may use clear tape,
plastic wrap, cardboard, rubber bands and props. Contestants
may not use glue or anything that could damage or
contaminate the products. Teams are encouraged to use
special effects and features to make the sculptures unique
Each team is to determine the amount of food needed based
on the size of the design. Labels must not be removed from
canned foods. The cans may be covered with colored paper to
create a desired look.
Also, consider the color your team wants in the structure
before purchasing the cans, as the color of the can's label
can add a powerful effect without the use of paper.
Each team should assign a team captain who will be the the
group's contact person. Captains should be able to attend a
team captain's meeting on March 20th at noon. Sculptures
must be constructed between 9:00 and 3:00 p.m. on March 24.
All food used for the CANstruction project will be donated
to the Havre Food Bank to be used locally to help feed the
Structures will remain on display through Saturday March
31. Teams will be required to retrieve any props and
materials that they wish to keep by March 31. Awards will be
