World Record for Largest Building made out of PEZ Candy!
Chuck Gameon is a Principal that the Choteau Elementary School in Choteau Montana. Readers may know his name from the classified ads in PEZ Collectors News. He collects PEZ and looks for donations of PEZ dispensers. He gives PEZ dispensers to the children as rewards for various things.
Earlier in the school year Chuck came up with the idea of a cool school project. He wanted to get the kids (grades K-6th) to build the local courthouse out of PEZ candy and to get into the Book of World records. There was a problem with that, but that didn't stop Chuck from the class project.
With the help of PEZ Candy, PEZ Collectors News was able to sponsor this project and it was underway.
The base of the building is 4’ x 5’ and the building stands at least 4’ tall. Close to 9,000 candy packs were used to make this historic building.
It is a work of art. These pictures do not show all of the hard work they put into this school project. They did the project during their free time during the day and near the end of the school year they had to work more hours just to get it done before the end of the school year. Great job guys it’s something to be very proud of!
