Buzzzzz! Do you hear that? Whirrr! Buzzz! It’s the sound of our community uniting against a common foe! Rosie the Riveter is a powerful and enduring symbol of the strength and unbending will of the American people in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. In Rosie’s first battle, the enemy was a far away aggressor – the Axis powers during World War II though her enemy today is much, much closer, it is no less threatening last year in Central Florida, over 70% of households were faced with the impossible choice of whether to pay for food or for housing. Our local neighbors and friends relied on charitable feeding programs for help with food an astounding 3.73 million times in 2013. To put that in perspective, the total population of Central Florida is approximately 3.3 million. So whether directly or indirectly, this enemy injures and affects each and every member of our community in some way. Our Rosie embodies the silent heroism required of each of us to ERAdicate hunger in Central Florida: hard work, generosity, perseverance, and a square meal. Let us follow her brave example standing together, arm in arm against hunger today. In solidarity with each other, WE CAN DO IT! We can ERAdicate hunger.

Music on television busted out in the 1980s with the introduction of MTV, the video musical sensation of this decade. Superstars such as Prince, Madonna, Whitney Houston and Dire Straits became permanent fixtures on the cable channel and gained a worldwide mass audience. Perhaps The Buggles described MTV best in their 1980s hit song “Video Killed the Radio Star,” which inaugurated the MTV era and saw the television generation completely eradicate the radio generation. MTV not only changed the way we experience music, but helped bring awareness to the world’s struggle with hunger by airing “Live Aid” concerts held in London and Philadelphia to raise funds for famine relief during the 1980’s. In the 1980s, music was no longer seen as just an audio art form, but became a visual art form, as well. MTV completely eradicated conventional ways of experiencing music. The HuntonBrady Architects/DPR Construction Team and Canstruction will ERA-dicate Hunger as well!

In an ERA of Smart Phones and wireless communication, where did it all begin? The radio! The invention of the radio began the era we all live in today. That one little step in technology lead to a major change in society, and altered the way we all live and communicate. That small invention changed the world. One CAN change the world. With small steps, we CAN change hunger in society. We CAN start a new ERA without hunger, one can at a time.

As the 2014 CANstruction theme is Eras, as well as, the fact that we, East Orlando Health and Rehab are a skilled nursing rehab facility that cares for people, and after much input and weeding through the icons and themes of various eras, we felt the perfect theme for us to do this year was the 60's theme of Peace. Pablo Picasso popularized the secular peace symbol after the World War II and the dove and olive branch was used by early Christians, both of which are in our build. Residents who come to our facility who are not well, not happy, discouraged, and some are indigent and homeless, but most come in need of peace in their lives. We see our world in a constant state of social upheaval and calamity, as well as, hear so many people suffering daily for a lack of food. We are convinced that if our world would give peace (peas) a chance, we could, would end world hunger, thus our title: End World Hunger: Give “Peas” A Chance. As you will see, by our design and can products, Winn Dixie has financially provided and partnered with us along with several businesses to get our Peace message out to the world, for us to come and work together to end world hunger.

We CAN Solve the Mystery!

HHCP
Honorable Mention
Scooby and the Gang were headed into town, When all of a sudden the Mystery Machine broke down. They saw many hungry faces and wondered who could be to blame, But after a few failed traps they had no clues and not a single name. The gang slowly realized that hunger wasn't some villain in a mask And that they’d need many hands to help them with their task. They rounded up some junior sleuths from HHCP, Who were willing and eager to help solve the mystery. “Alright everyone,” announced Fred in a happy mood, “Let’s split up and look for food!” Scooby and Shaggy emptied out their secret stash, While HHCP bought cans after they raised a little cash. They gathered all the food they found to build a secret weapon, Then called up Scooby and the Gang to give it an inspection. As they entered the mall they spotted a familiar blue and green. “Jinkies!” beamed Velma, “It’s the Mystery Machine!” There stood the great can van surrounded by those involved, And so the mystery of hunger had finally been solved.

Honorable Mention
First introduced to the world in 1950 on the premiere episode of the Mickey Mouse Club, the iconic Mickey Mouse Ears Hat has become a symbol that represents not only the Disney brand, but also recalls the classic years of Mickey Mouse’s inception. For more than half a century they have capped the heads of Mousketeers and Disney Guests alike, and are the most popular souvenir sold at the Disney parks each day. Their design was the brainchild of Roy Williams after watching the 1929 Mickey short The Karnival Kid, in which Mickey gallantly tips his ears to Minnie. Though reminiscent of the era spanning from Walt Disney’s first black and white animations to the opening of his first amusement park, Disneyland, in 1955, Mickey Mouse Ears will always be a timeless icon.

I Choo-Choo-Choose You Award
“All Aboard!” is a herald phase that strikes a deep emotional chord about future projection, anticipation and promised destinations. Linking this phrase with the purpose and aim at ending hunger, just resonate with each other. Continuing that narrative process with incorporating the concept of the train poster, which literally became an art-form unto itself during the heyday of train travel, where publicity influenced public perception all so well. It is a concept that Canstruction carries on today. “All Aboard to End Hunger” capitalizes upon these sentiments, awareness, as well as highlights a re-emerging renaissance of high-speed public travel coming again to not only Florida, but centrally positioned here in Orlando.

8 bit Gamer Award
Our CANstruction team was inspired by the era of the 8-bit video game and, particularly, the emergence of this technology in homes. Many of us have fond memories of playing Nintendo’s Duck Hunt in the living rooms of our families and friends and wanted to recreate a memorable scene from this nostalgic video game. We decided to depict the Game Over scene, not only because of its iconic nature as one of the Greatest Video Game Moments, according to GameDaily and Official Nintendo Magazine, but also because it emphasizes our focus on ending hunger and the need for continued support. The phrase Game Over has become synonymous with describing the end of an event, while in video games it indicates the beginning of someone else turn. Our design and message “Game Over, Hunger has Met its Match!” captures our intent of expressing the push to end hunger with a call to action for our audience in a fun, family-friendly way. We want our audience to walk away with the message that it is now their turn to help battle hunger.

Don Pardo Award
Did you know that those who struggle with hunger often do so in silence? We wanted to portray "Speaking Out Against Hunger" by the very object that allows us to do so- a microphone. The era of the beginning of radio brought on the ability for a message to reach the masses and we hope to use our microphone to do the same. By spreading our message and promoting awareness, we all can Era-dicate hunger!

Turtle Power Used to ERAdicate Hunger

SHFB Award
A Hero Can Come From Anywhere By: April O’Neil Statistics show that childhood hunger affects 1 in 5 or approximately 16 million children every day in the U.S. This gnarly issue is one that no child should have to deal with in an ERA of their life that should be filled with fun and learning. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bring about the nostalgic feelings that accompany youth, making the childhood ‘ERA’ a totally radical focus for the Cuhaci & Peterson 2014 Canstruction structure. Much like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael, who live underground in the shadows, true heroes can be ninja-like, doing good without stepping into the limelight. As well, childhood is a prime ERA for a mentor to show how one person CAN make a difference, in the same way the turtles’ Sensei, Splinter, instilled ideals like “true power lies in believing in one another”. The C&P team plans to use turtle power to illustrate that a hero CAN come from anywhere – even underground. By constructing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming out of a city manhole we will visually reinforce that anyone CAN be a super hero (whether a child or a cartoon turtle) and that we CAN ERAdicate hunger in children if we “shell out” for our community.

Walt Disney World, Design & Engineering (WDW, D&E) Team came together this to celebrate the 50th Anniversary for the attraction “it’s a small world.” The attraction was personally masterminded by Walt Disney in support of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and created for the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. It was a huge hit for 2 seasons at the fair and was eventually shipped back to Disneyland Park, where it reopened on May 28, 1966. In 1971, “it’s a small world” was recreated to become one of the Opening Day attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. Due to its immense popularity, the attraction has been replicated in every Disney Resort around the world and is considered a Walt Disney classic. "The World's Fair was critical, because Walt (Disney) used it as a proving grounds for WDI to develop bigger and better shows… I consider the fair to be the first golden era of Imagineering attractions…" -Imagineer Tony Baxter “… We wanted to foster a better understanding among the nations of the world by showing the dress, the customs, the language, the music, and a little of the culture of our neighbors around the world - - and we wanted to show it to be a very happy one. And I think it’s safe to say that having fun has universal appeal.” -Walt Disney “It’s a small world” nurtured an ERA for inventive attractions and it was a gift to the children of the world. Our CAN-Structure is to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of its debut and to give back to the children of world by eradicating hunger. It's a world of carrots, a world of beans. It's a world of corn and a world of greens....It is time we're aware, come together and share to ERAdicate hunger now. It’s a Small World After All and We CAN Feed This World After All!
