This year the four sculptures in CanStruction Noblesville used 3,000 cans and the community voted with more than 150 cans and $250 cash, all donated to the Noblesville Township Trustee to help relieve hunger and hunger anxiety in Noblesville and Hamilton County.
The 2016 CanStruction Noblesville winners are:
- KRM Architecture – People’s Choice received 204 votes for “Pikachu” displayed at Kiln Creations, 60 N 9th Street, and Best Use of Labels for the same design.

In the last four years, CanStruction Noblesville has generated more than 15,000 cans to help rectify a silent need in Hamilton County, which according to Gleaners is the fact that one in eight Hamilton County residents are food insecure.
“Living and working in Noblesville has been a great experience for my family, and I try to do my small part to give back, by helping relieve hunger and hunger anxiety in Noblesville and Hamilton County,” said Darren Peterson, event chair and owner of Peterson Architecture. “The statistics are overwhelming, even in a county as affluent as ours, and in the first four years, through very generous donations of the community, partnership with sponsors and very diligent volunteers, I am proud to be a small part of this community effort.”
