FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Fort Wayne's 8th Annual CANstruction is officially underway.

16 area high schools are competing, as students from ages 14-18 pair with engineer and design mentors to build their structures in just 12 hours.

Those creations, made entirely out of cans, follow the theme of "Great Travel Destinations."

Last year, Fort Wayne's CANstruction event earned fourth place internationally.

You can see the final products at Glenbrook Square Mall through March 23rd. If you want to vote for your favorite design, bring your own canned goods to cast a vote. After March 23rd, all the food goes to the Community Harvest Food Bank.
