Vancouver Lego Games: Win Tickets

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

What a fun event! When I was a kid, my brother and I were Lego-crazed. I would have gone bonkers to attend something like this!

As part of a class project, five students from UBC decided to organize a charity Lego building event. The Vancouver Lego Games will benefit Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and will be the world’s largest charity Lego building event. So cool.

The event takes place April 28th from 2PM – 4PM at the Firefighter’s Club in Burnaby. 300 participants are expected.

Competitors have two ways to participate:

Ready, Set, Build!

Vancouver Lego Games will provide bricks for each person in which a theme will be announced and they will have 15 minutes to create a unique creation to go along with that theme. Judges will then choose the winner from each age category. Prizes will be awarded.

My Own Creation

Competitors are asked to bring a unique creation (no exact sets) to showcase their unique Lego building skills. We simply ask that the creation fit in a space that is 12″ x 12″ so that pieces can be displayed properly.

Competitors will be judged according to these age groupings:

5 to 6 years old
7 to 8 years old
9 to 10 years old
11 to 12 years old
13 to 18 years old
Adult

For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit their website at www.vancouverlegogames.com.

We have 1 adult competitor pass and 1 youth competitor pass to give away to a couple of our lucky readers. Parents, you can of course enter for your kiddos to win the youth pass. Please leave a note below, indicating which pass you’d like to win, to enter to win. Two winners will be chosen at random on March 25, 2013.

    My soon to be 7 year old son is a Lego maniac! He spends several hours a day playing Lego (mostly Lego Star wars right now) and he would love the chance to compete in the child competition. Thank you for the contest!
