Our annual Building Competition with LEGO Bricks is back, this year virtually!
Though this year’s competition will be online, not everything will be different. Like in past years, there will be 50 spots to register for beginning on Sunday, August 9th. The Whistler Museum will announce a theme and it will be your challenge to interpret that theme using LEGO bricks (or DUPLO for the younger ones)! When you submit the photo of your creation, you’ll include a description of what you’ve built and how you have interpreted the theme.
The Whistler Museum will be accepting LEGO creation submissions by email from Sunday, August 23rd to Saturday, August 29th. To make sure the competition is as fair as possible, we will be announcing the theme on Saturday, August 22nd and each child will have a week to send in their submission.
Like past years, we will have goody bags available for all participants and prizes for category winners. These will be be available for pick up only at the Whistler Museum from Sunday, August 30th through Sunday, September 6th. Prize winners will be announced Sunday, August 30th.
Winners will be judged on their LEGO creations as well as the description on how it relates to the theme. We recognize that since families will be using their own LEGO and not all families will have the same amounts, winners will not be judged on how big or extravagant their creations are, but on their creativity, originality and how well they relate what they’ve made with the theme.
