This year's theme for the CANstruction build, which benefits Community Harvest Food Bank, is "cartoons." Canterbury's Projects in Engineering class chose the most iconic of cartoon characters for its structure - Snoopy, resting atop his red doghouse with Woodstock perched on his belly. The High School students designed their structure using cans of ravioli, potatoes, beans and tuna. They also used packets of Kool-aid, granola bars, bags of beans and macaroni cheese. The exhibit took about four hours to build and 2,880 cans. You can help Canterbury's team win the Fan Choice award, by voting for Snoopy (with canned food donations). Simply place your donation in the container located by Snoopy (right in front of Macy's at Glenbrook Mall). Voting begins Saturday, April 16, through Sunday, April 24.
