April 8th at 11:00 AM – STYP & TSB Canstruction Build


On April 8th, STYP is once again teaming up with Tioga State Bank for the Southern Tier’s 5th Annual CANSTRUCTION! 

Canstruction® is an international hunger-relief competition where architects, engineers, contractors, and community members compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. We will be constructing downtown Binghamton’s historic courthouse!

The canned food, other food items used in our structure, and any monetary donations collected will be distributed throughout CHOW and the Food Bank of the Southern Tier to emergency food programs throughout Broome County, including soup kitchens, the backpack program, and other community meal programs.

Please RSVP “Going” if you plan on attending, and email Kyle Nedlik at if you have any questions.

More information on the event can be found at the links on the following page: Check out the “Discussion” tab on this event to view our proposed design!

Our structure will be up for a week at the Oakdale Mall after the build date for public viewing, so check it out if you can!
