"Candemonium" Competition Benefits Missoula Food Bank

MISSOULA -

It was total "candemonium" at Southgate Mall on Friday as teams competed in making the best structure out of cans.

"It's very fun just being able to place cans, and being very curious of where it's going to go," said St. Joseph Elementary student, Jason Firth.

Jason is a member of one of the six teams in the "Candemonium" competition. Teams made up of local students and organizations were paired with an architect and challenged to build a structure.

Designs included Mike "Can"zowski based on the Monsters Inc. character, and the Minions from Despicable Me. Participants had to buy their own cans, which will all go to the food bank once the competition is over.

"This is a huge "foodraiser" for us, it's an amazing way that teams are coming together. It's really fun team building, but at the same time it's incredibly helpful to our community," Jessica Allred with the Missoula Food Bank said.

A ceremony takes place on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the mall, where the winner will be awarded.
