Join us for Canstruction Kansas City! See amazing structures built entirely out of canned food and other nonperishable items. Teams of Kansas City architects, engineers and contractors will compete against each other to create amazing structures. When the exhibit closes, the food is donated to Harvesters and is distributed to hungry families, children and seniors in our community.
Admission is FREE. The exhibit is located on the first level of the mall in the corridors of Nordstrom and Macy's.
Sculptures will be judged in the following categories: Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Best Use of Labels, Best Meal, Most Cans and Best Original Design by a panel of judges. The six winning entries will represent Kansas City in the national Canstruction competition. The winners of the national competition will be selected and honored at the Society of Design Administration’s national meeting.
