With the Shafter Colours Festival approaching, the Shafter Woman's Club is again preparing for their annual "Canstructional" design-build competition to be held the weekend of Feb. 23-24. This is a unique project to encourage artistic endeavor and make a difference by feeding the hungry.

Participants are encouraged to construct architectural structures or designs with nonperishable cans and boxes of food. Awards will be given in three categories: adult, high schoo, and elementary.

Those interested in designing a nonperishable art display can register their team with the Shafter Woman's Club and ask for the details by emailing [email protected]

The creations will be featured the weekend of Colours on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 11 am to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 24 from 1 to 4 p.m.

The display will remain at the Depot from February to March. After the competition, all of the food items will be donated to a local food pantry for use in the Shafter community.
