FARGO - Employees of Apex Engineering Group are putting their creative talents to work for a good cause.

In 2017, the firm launched a "CanStruction" contest as a fundraiser and internal team-building activity to support local food pantries, according to an email to The Forum.

Led by brand ambassadors at Apex locations, employees use canned and boxed goods to show what they "CAN construct." Once a winning office is named, all the food is donated to local food pantries. Employees of the winning office will celebrate with a soup lunch.

This year's theme is "Apex Goes to the Movies." Each entry features a connection to the film industry.


Entries include "Snoopy," "American Pie," "Top Gun," "Despicable Me," "Monoplex."

The public is invited to vote for their favorite on Apex Engineering Group's Facebook page . Voting ends at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1.
