LEGO-rama – the program for kids who love to build – will be Saturday, Jan. 18, 1-3 p.m., in the Community Room at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave.
The theme for the ninth annual LEGO program is “Space, Building for the Future.” Entries in the design contest can be space ships, space stations, launch facilities, Moon or Mars colonies, aliens and their spacecraft – anything space-related.
One entry per participant can be entered in the contest for ages 4 to 13. Entries must be original designs – not a LEGO or compatible brand kit – built by the participant without adult assistance. Entries are limited to a 15-by-15 inch footprint (the space it occupies on a table). Judging will be in age groups 4-6, 7-10, and 11-13.
For the second year judging and this year’s program will be provided by members of the TeraViks FIRST Robotics Club at Coeur d’Alene High School.
Entries should be built prior to being brought to the library. And can be delivered to the Community Room as early as 12:30 p.m. Judging will be from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. Certificates will be awarded in each age group. A People’s Choice award will also be made based on audience voting.
Anyone age 14 and older may display designs, but these will not be included in judging. Exhibition Category entries are also limited to a 15-by-15 inch footprint.
Complete rules are available in the Seagraves Children’s Library or online at www.cdalibrary.org.
LEGO-rama, like all youth programs at the library, is supported by the Friends of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library.
