Awards handed out for Canstruction of the Southern Tier

JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — If you’ve been to the Oakdale Mall this week, you’ve probably noticed some interesting “canstructions.”

Awards were handed out Wednesday night for local companies participating in Canstruction of the Southern Tier at the Oakdale Mall.

Twelve Binghamton area organizations participated in Canstruction. It’s a hunger-relief competition where teams competed to design and build the giant structures.

Although it was a competition, the overall goal is all about feeding the hungry.

“We build these amazing structures the ultimate end goal is that people are fed it’s just unconscionable for us to sit on the sidelines when people are hungry in our area,” said Joe Sellepack, Director of the Broome County Council of Churches.

The cans of food will be distributed on Monday to food banks. The food will assist 90 food pantries and programs in Broome County.

Below are a list of the winners:

Jurors’ Favorite/Most Cans — IBM Endicott

People’s Choice Small — Chenango Valley STEAM and Weis Markets

People’s Choice Large — Broome-Tioga BOCES New Visions and Lockheed Martin

Structural Integrity — Broome-Tioga BOCES CTE Leadership/Skills USA and Visions Federal Credit Union
