The “Monsters of Metal” team, with members from ATAS International, Inc. and the Architectural Studio, participated in the local Canstruction competition recently held at the Lehigh Valley Mall. They earned the “Best Use of Labels” award, utilizing a variety of canned vegetables, along with bags of white rice and black beans, to create their cansculpture.

For this year’s event, structures were built with a “Lehigh Valley Heritage” theme. Eight teams competed using 38,000 cans of food (approximately 32,000 pounds). The “Monsters of Metal” built a 1969 vintage race car cansculpture, paying tribute to Nazareth Speedway and the drivers who raced on that local track.  All the food was donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank in the Lehigh Valley at the end of the competition.
