LEGO-rama – the program for kids who love to build – will be Saturday, Jan. 15, 1-3 p.m., in the Community Room at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave.
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 kits – 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.
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 and prizes 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 limit to a 15-by-15 inch footprint.
“This is the sixth year for LEGO-rama and it grows in popularity every year,” said David Townsend, Communication Coordinator and LEGO Leader. “We have had so much fun with it that other libraries have contacted us for information so they can create programs of their own.”
Complete rules are available in the Seagraves Children’s Library or online at www.cdalibrary.org.
The day’s activities will also include a brief program, refreshments and building contests.
