FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Voting wraps up at the end of Saturday, capping a weeklong fundraiser featuring “cantastic” displays created by area schools.

Ten different groups of students put forth their creative visions in “Canstruction 2022,” a project that supports the Community Harvest Food Bank. Themed creations -- a “SpongeBob SquarePants,” an “Emerald City” and a “giant Crayons” motif among them -- are on display at Glenbrook Square.

But you don’t need to visit the mall to vote and to contribute to the fight against hunger. All 10 displays are posted online, where the public can choose their favorite. Each dollar contributed to the fundraiser buys the donor a vote.

The schools that are participating are:

  • DeKalb High School
  • North Side High School
  • Northrop High School
  • Concordia Lutheran High School
  • New Haven High School
  • St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School
  • Eastside High School
  • Central Noble High School
  • New Tech Academy
  • Blackhawk Middle School

Voting ends at the stroke of midnight, and the displays will be disassembled on Sunday.
