13th Annual CANSTRUCTION 2018 - Comic-CAN!
A collection meals for our local community that brings stories to life and life to stories...One Can at a Time.
Hunger affects thousands in our community - a reality we sometimes wish was fiction. This year’s Canstruction competition hopes to reach the next level in our fight against hunger.  Our “Comic-CAN” theme focuses on ideas that stem from comic books, science fiction & fantasy, and gaming. Teams within Hawai’i’s design and construction industry are encouraged to bring to life their own unique Canstruction creations.  Rush to grab a spot to design and build structures that reflect larger-than-life characters, inspirational stories, and fantastical worlds that harness our imaginations and feed those in need.

Hunger affects thousands in our own community. This year’s Canstruction competition highlights our fight to end hunger from the smallest unit of ‘ohana here in Hawaii to a global level perspective...and beyond.
