VOLUNTEER OR SPONSOR A TEAM
The American Society of Civil Engineers West TN Branch Younger Members Group is organizing a VIRTUAL Canstruction JR competition with students' design submissions due by April 23, 2021.
Canstruction is a design competition in which teams enter and compete against one another to make the best design out of canned food items. Visit for more details!
After the competition all of the cans used in the designs will be donated to the Mid-South Food Bank to help those most in need.
Our competition is open to elementary, middle, and high school students, with college engineering students and professional engineers serving as mentors and judges. This is a great way to help encourage K-12 students to consider engineering, while giving back to the community!
This year judging of the design drawings will take place virtually, and only finalist entries will be built (by a team of college students with K-12 students providing input via a virtual platform). Full sponsorships are available at $100, and half sponsorships at $50 are available. Sponsorships will be used to purchase canned food for the finalist entries. All proceeds (canned food and any unspent funds) will be donated to the Mid-South Food Bank. Please consider sponsoring a team!!!
