An extraordinary annual design competition, and the most unique food charity in the world, Canstruction challenges teams of architects, engineers, and contractors to build sculptures made entirely out of unopened cans of food.

Awards are granted in the following categories:
Best Original Design

Structural Ingenuity
Most Cans
People’s Choice
Best Meal
Cheri C. Melillo Award Honorable Mention
