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
