LEGOmaniacs Pre-K through Grade 8 and families are invited to enter and display their original creations (no kits are allowed).

Entries should be constructed at home, brought to the NewsBank Conference Center between 9 to 10 a.m., and set up within an 18 inches x 30 inches space. Entries will be judged in different grade categories for their originality, imagination and presentation.

For team entries, the age of the oldest member will determine the grade category. There is also a separate family team class for adults and children who have collaborated. The judges speak with every entrant to make sure they understand each entry’s theme and details before they write comments on an entry card.

LEGO prizes will be awarded to winners and runners-up in the grade and family team divisions, with special awards for the Judges’ Choice for Best in Show and Most Vermont creations. A new award, the Creators’ Choice, will recognize the construction the entrants themselves vote as their most favorites.

Refreshments will be for sale. Attendees are encouraged to stay and enjoy the displays.

Pre-registration forms and a fee of $10 must be received by March 16 to be assured of a space. Entry forms may be downloaded from here at or and Special Events at
