NWTC architecture challenge gives back
November 4, 2013
From fox11online.com: “NWTC architecture challenge gives back” — GREEN BAY – Students at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College are making a difference in an unusual way. Call it food by design.
They took on a challenge, to be architects with the food items to be donated later to a campus food pantry.
The five teams, made up of architectural club members, had 24 hours to build their structures. They only saw their building materials right before the competition started.
Professional architects judged the masterpieces and the top three were awarded with a plaque that will hang in the school.
After the awards were given, the nonperishable food items were packed up and donated to Shared Harvest Food Cupboard.
“The biggest thing is that it’s a big contribution giving back to our community, giving back to people that are less fortunate than we are,” said Steve Gussert, president of the NWTC Architectural Club.
The pantry is for students that don’t have enough money to buy food.
