Food Fort Competition
Location: Student Union Plaza
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Join us in raising
awareness and generating support for our Lend-A-Wing Pantry! This year, we are
looking to gather a variety of items such as boxed cereals, pastas, pasta
sauces, peanut butters, and other non-perishables in addition to cans. The Food
Fort Competition, previously known as the Can Castle Competition, will have two
different point categories: one category based upon the items you brought,
which will each have a unique point value, and one category for design. Points
scored in the design category will be determined based on on overall look, use
of space (10ft x 10ft), UNF school spirit, “Nest Fest” theme incorporation, and
overall creativity. Points scored in the food items category will be determined
using a score sheet that we will publish closer to the competition, which will
award different point values to different items. May the best Food Fort win!
