Pirate’s Plunder wins “Best Meal” at 2014 CANstruction

Jon Lee and I were honored to co-captain Team WATG as we competed in the CANstruction competition, sponsored by AIA Honolulu at Pearlridge Center.

In our eight-year history of competing in CANstruction, this is the first year we used every single can in our structure. In total, over 4,000 cans were used to build the treasure chest and octopus. Every single can will go to the Hawaii Foodbank.

Every single can will go to the Hawaii Foodbank.

Although we didn’t win the coveted “Jurors’ Favorite” award, Team WATG once again brought their A-game for this worthy cause.

The final results:

Best use of labels: Dream up high, stand up to hunger – CAN-venture w/ us (Up): RMAA
Best Meal: Pirate’s Plunder WATG
Structural Ingenuity: Fiercely Fighting Hunger to End Hunger (Dragon): Coffman Engineers
