The COVID-19 pandemic forced the this year’s Canstruction exhibit at Centre Village Mall to close to public viewing earlier than planned in March, but it featured an outstanding collection of entries.
The annual event, which benefits local food banks, challenges teams to devise artistic and structurally sound creations built with cans of food. This year’s winning creations were:
Structural Ingenuity – St. Basil’s Cathedral by Calvin Christian School
Best Meal – Crab by Save On Foods
Best Use of Labels – Tower Bridge by Associated Engineering
Best Original Design – Tower Bridge by Associated Engineering
Most Cans – St. Basil’s Cathedral by Calvin Christian School
People’s Choice Award – St. Basil’s Cathedral by Calvin Christian School.
The event was successful in assisting local food banks, providing 5,853 pounds of food items for Interfaith Food Bank, with a dollar value of $15,217.80. Lethbridge Food Bank received 4,323 pounds of food, equivalent to $11,239.80 and the Lethbridge College Students Association Food Bank benefited to the tune of 2,780 pounds of food worth approximately $4,000.
If you didn’t get a chance to see the entries in the 2020 Canstruction event, photos of the structures can be viewed online at the Lethbridge Food Bank website, https://lethbridgefoodbank.ca/canstruction-ends-early-due-to-covid-19/.
