The event is open to LEGOmaniacs Pre-K through Grade 8 and their families.

Sponsored for the eighth year by St. Luke’s, the event will benefit both the church and the Children’s Section of Chester’s Whiting Library.

The Registration Form can be downloaded here.

Participants should construct their original creations (no kits allowed), with a maximum size of 24 inches x 36 inches, and bring them on March 16 between 9 and 10 a.m. to the Conference Center. Entries will be judged in different grade categories from 10 a.m. to noon for their 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 for collaborating children and parents.  Unique motorized LEGOs will be considered in a separate section.

At 12:30 LEGO prizes will be awarded to winners and runners-up in the different classes, with special awards for the Judges’ choice for Best in Show and Most Vermont creations. The Creators’ Choice Award will be given to the entry that the contestants themselves vote as the most outstanding creation.

Refreshments will be on sale to encourage everyone to stay and view the different entries, as well as to share ideas and techniques during the judging. Again this year young people may create an additional construction at a special LEGO station. They will not be able to remove their creation from the special area and won’t be able to enter them in the contest, but this is a good opportunity for students to construct something different, perhaps with a friend, for some additional fun.

Entries by Friday March 8 are $15. After that date and on the day of the contest, entries will be $20. A check for the registration fee should be made out to “St. Luke’s Church” and mailed, along with the registration form, to the Registrar, Lillian Willis, PO Box 318, Chester, VT 05143.
