Creative Construction: LEGO Building Challenge

Friday, July 12, 5:30 – 8 pm, Fee: $10 per team

Community Center, 233 W. Main Street

How creative are you with a bucket of Legos? Join the Lego Building Challenge and find out! Boys and girls ages 5-12 may choose one adult partner to form a team. Each team will receive a pre-sorted kit of various LEGO pieces (provided by Pack Rats Mini Mart) and 2½ hours to construct a project with the designated theme. Each project will be named, tagged and displayed at the Community Center along with a picture of the team who constructed it. While the projects are on display, spectators will be able to come by and vote for their favorite, so you will want to spread the word among your family and friends. Voting will begin Saturday, July 13 (1:30-4:30 pm) and continue the following Monday -Thursday, July 15 -18 (8 am -7 pm). The votes will then be tallied and the top three teams will receive gift cards provided by sponsor Hamilton Hunter Builders. Happy building! Registration deadline: July 8.
