Mt. View can sculpture commands top prize
BY STACI WILSON
Mountain View showed off its command creating can sculptures earning the top prize for the second year in a row in the annual Feed-A-Friend contest.
The Eagles Student Government Association used over 900 cans to create a Duck Dynasty-inspired Duck Commander logo in the lobby of the high school.
The cans, along with the other donations, were collected throughout the school and will be distributed with Trehab’s annual Thanksgiving dinner giveaway.
Blue Ridge and Elk Lake also participated in the can sculpture contest, and each group had a different take on designs.
Blue Ridge’s Leo Club incorporated food into the theme – designing a three-dimensional lunch box, complete with cans wrapped to resemble a carrot and a Raider reusable water bottle made from cans wrapped in red paper with the school logo.
Elk Lake’s Student Council focused on the community and holiday spirit of Feed-A-Friend with cans wrapped in green to create a backdrop for a paper turkey and cans arranged into a heart at the base of the design.
In addition to area schools, churches and other community organizations also contribute to the Feed-A-Friend program.
Thanksgiving dinners, complete with turkeys, will be distributed from Trehab’s Susquehanna and Montrose food bank locations to area families.
Trehab has also created a “fan favorite” for the can sculpture contest. Visit the Trehab Facebook page and cast a vote for your favorite sculpture.
