RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Students from the South Dakota School of Mines American Society of Civil Engineers are building a giant sculpture out of donated food cans.

Saturday’s “Canstruction” event at Rushmore Mall showcases colossal structures from community organizations made out of canned food. The weeklong competition is open to public voting.

Rapid City Leadership class of 2014 is hosting the event to benefit Feeding South Dakota and the Hope Center.

Other teams include Black Hills Federal Credit Union, Boys Scout Venture Crew 320, HDR Engineering and Banner Associates.

The structures will be on display through Feb. 28. The canned food will be donated to Feeding South Dakota, and monetary proceeds will go toward the addition of an in-house laundry facility in the HOPE Center, laundry supplies and the Soap for HOPE project.
