This was the third annual awarding of this prize named for Canstruction Founder, Cheri C. Melillo. Each year the criteria for this award changes and is awarded by the organizing committee or its agents. Cheri's son, Brion van Over, and husband, Bruce Melillo picked the winner based from a pool of teams that donated their cans immediately after Hurricane Sandy hit in November (causing the competition to be postponed). This team donated their cans to City Harvest and regrouped to buy new cans and then build their structure! Their efforts deserve some special recognition. Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to everyone who made the 20th Annual New York City Canstruction Design/Build Competition possible.
