The Monsters of Metal team, with members from ATAS International Inc. and the Architectural Studio, participated in the 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.
