SkillsUSA Texas Chapters Enter Competition to Fight Hunger

Kudos to SkillsUSA Texas chapters entering the Canstruction competition and annual food drive for the Food Bank of Corpus Christi. What a great display of what our students “CAN” do when given the opportunity.

Chapter 4160 from George Ranch High School’s project’s theme is “Hop for Hunger”. This team will create a Minecraft Bunny using 1000 cans. These cans, as will all others, be donated to the Food Bank of Corpus Christi.

Sherman High School, Chapter 1137 titled their sculpture “World Peace Will End World Hunger”. While most cans are soup, the group feels their cans represent a lifeline for those that are hungry.

“Flush out Hunger” is Livingston High Schools entry. Several SkillsUSA Texas chapters from Welding, Carpentry, and Culinary, Ad Design, Criminal Justice and Graphic Design programs will use 1133 cans to create their idea of “Flushing out Hunger”. Can you guess the design?

Cedar Park High School from District 10 stems from a stroke of genius creativity. CANlantis will be constructed out of 1040 cans of tuna, Chef Boyardee and green beans.

Carl Wunsche Sr. High School in Spring, Texas gathered food cans by reaching out to their community for donations of cans and sponsoring a “Change for Change” campaign. During this campaign, students solicited loose change from peers and advisors each Friday to help purchase the cans needed to build their 1500 can sculpture.

Thank you for your entries. It is not too late to send a copy of your Canstruction notebook to the state office.

There will be an area to donate your own canned goods to the food drive at the conference. Be sure to stop by the American Bank Center on Friday, March 27, 2015 in Corpus Christi, TX to see the students build their sculptures. Its part of our annual SkillsUSA Texas Leadership and Skills Conference where students demonstrate their leadership and technical skills developed in their Career and Technical programs across our great State of Texas.
