Ninety New Iberia students collected more than 8,000 cans of food for local charities last night while showing off their creative abilities.
Catholic High held its inaugural Canstruction event. Nine teams each created an individual work with the cans, such as a barn, a Tabasco bottle, and even sushi.
School officials say 500 people came out to view the "can-tastic" artwork.
The Campus Ministry Team's "Barn to Serve" took home top honors, winning the popular vote of those who attended the event.
The Beta Club's castle piece won the award for most cans used, as the project incorporated more than 1,800 canned goods.
Today, the school donated the cans to Solomon House, Social Service Center, and Shepherd's Food Pantry.
