The Theme
The theme for this building competition is “Animals.”  Keep this in mind as you build, our judges will be looking for the creations that best express this theme.

Blue Ribbon Award = $20 cash + 10 LEGO® Building Lab passes ($50 value)
Honorable Mention Award = 10 LEGO® Building Lab passes ($50 value)
*All youth entered in the competition will receive a certificate of participation

What to expect
When you check in on the day of competition, you will be given a bin full of a random assortment of LEGO® bricks and assigned an area where you will build and display your creation (approximately 3′wide by 1.5′deep).  At any point during the competition you can exchange your bin for a new bin, as many times as you’d like. When you are finished with your creation feel free to hang out and watch other builders, or leave and return at 5pm for the awards announcements & presentations.  After the awards have been announced, you can even purchase your creation and take it home (cost is $1.50/ounce).
