Attention all Lego Lovers! Do you love to build your own unique creations? Would you like to show off your amazing engineering skills? Then you won’t want to miss the 6th Annual Lego Day at the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum where “everything is awesome!”
Lego Day will be held on Sunday, March 15 from 1-5 p.m. Whether you want to submit your own ingenious entry into the competition or you just want to come and admire the local building talent, Lego Day is sure to be fun for everyone of all ages.
In addition to the competition, activities will include Lego games, demonstrations and an open-build table. There will also be special guest judges. Admission to the event is free with museum admission which is $5 for adults and children and $4 for seniors.
Participants can submit entries as individuals or as a team. (Because as you know, “everything is cool when you’re part of team!”) Entries can be dropped off at the museum this week, March 10-13 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. They will also be accepted on Lego Day from 1-1:30 p.m.
A $5 fee will apply for each Lego entry and must be paid when you drop it off. Participants are welcome to submit as many creations as they want. Parents are even invited to participate in the competition.
Judging will be held from 1-2:30 p.m. and award announcements will begin at 3 p.m. Judging will be based on the originality of ideas, creativity of the build, and the amount of details.
The event is sponsored by The Robeson Family Benefit Fund. For rules about eligibility, team requirements, and entry rules, go to the Orpheum’s website.
