YVC Canstructure Contest

What is CANSTRUCTURE? Canstructure is a structure building competition to fight hunger. Teams of Berks County youth compete in a contest to build incredible structures made from cans of food.  Each team is responsible for holding its own food drive prior to the event to collect the cans for its structure and all canned food will be donated to the Helping Harvest Food Bank following the competition.

Youth Volunteer Corps of Reading will hold its 4th annual Canstructure competition on April 28 - May 2, 2021 at locations around Berks including the Berkshire Mall. The theme of this year's contest is Stronger Together.  Changes to the competition will allow for the structures to be built at locations determined by each team (e.g., school, church, garage, mall etc.). Teams will submit short videos on thier structure to be judged virtually on May 2. 

Team registration for the contest is due February 5.  

To learn more now, see our 2021 Canstructure FlyerRegistration Form, and Rules handouts.
