2020 LEGO Contest
LEGO Alert: 2020 LEGO Contest Is March 14; Pre-Registration Deadline Is March 6
The annual LEGO Contest will be 9 to 1 on Saturday March 14 at the NewsBank Conference Center, 352 Main Street. The event is open to the public. Early Bird pre-registration is $15 by March 6. After then, an entry goes to $20. Download the entry form here.
LEGO maniacs Pre-K through Grade 8 and families are invited to display their original creations (no kits allowed). Entries should be constructed at home and brought to NewsBank from 9 to 10 AM on Contest day. Entries will be judged in different grade categories from 10 AM to noon for originality, imagination, and presentation. There is also a separate family class. LEGO prizes will be awarded to winners and runners-up in the grade and family divisions, with awards for Best in Show and Most Vermont. The Creators’ Choice Award will be what the contestants vote as their favorite.
Refreshments will be on sale to encourage people to stay and view the displays. After speaking with judges, entrants may build something at a LEGO station. They can’t enter that construction or remove the loaned LEGOs, but they can have extra fun while the judges are making their decisions.
Part of the proceeds will go to the Whiting Library’s Children’s Section. For additional information, contact Lillian Willis at 802-875-1340 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
