2013 LEGO Contest coming up; early registration encouraged

Get those creative juices flowing: The 2nd Annual LEGO Contest, sponsored by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, is fast approaching. The contest is open to the public and will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday March 2 at Willard Hall, located behind  St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 313 Main St. in Chester. An early bird entrance fee of $10 is available to those who register before Tuesday, Feb.26. Afterward, the fee is $15.  Early registration will also ensure a space.

LEGOmaniacs in pre-K through grade 8 and families are invited to enter and display their original creations. No kits are allowed and entries should fit into a space of about 18 by 30 inches. Entries should be constructed at home, brought to Willard Hall, and set up from 9 to 10 a.m. on March 2.  Entries will be judged in different grade categories from 10 a.m. to noon based on originality, imagination and presentation.  If a structure is a team entry, the age of the oldest member will determine the grade category.  There is also a separate family team class when adults and children have collaborated.
