Get your LEGO® bricks ready! Now through June 7, The Grand Rapids Public Museum is hosting a Meijer Dream it, Build it Building Contest with LEGO® bricks. The contest will encourage creativity, architecture and art — all using LEGO®.
This is Jorryn’s dream come true. The Grand Rapids Public Museum is one of our favorite places on earth — and Jorryn adored the LEGO® exhibit when we visited earlier this year. The idea of having a creation displayed at the museum is almost too much to handle. Needless to say, there is lots of designing and building in our house right now.
The Meijer Dream it, Build it Building Contest is looking for participants to create their best, original LEGO® brick creation consisting entirely of LEGO® Duplo, Megablocks, or other LEGO®-compatible plastic bricks or related pieces. The entry must be photographed, and photographs must be emailed to the GRPM.
Prizes include tickets to see “Real Pirates” – an exhibition coming to the GRPM this fall, Skylark LEGO® kits, Meijer gift cards, plus the winning creation on display from mid-July to August 31 at the Museum. Participants can enter individually or in a team, and categories are based on age. LEGO® creations cannot exceed 12” x 12” x 3’ for individuals or 24” x 24” x 4’ for groups.
To find out more about instructions and how to enter visit www.grmusuem.org/legocontest. To submit entries, register online and send no more than five .jpg images to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name/group name and category in the subject line. Entries must be submitted by Saturday, June 14 at 11:59 p.m. to participate. Full contest rules can be found at grpm.org.
Meijer is the title sponsor of the “Dream it, Build it” contest, a LEGO® Certified Professional Exhibit on display through August 31 at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. “Dream it, Build it” features architectural masterpieces recreated with LEGO® bricks by Certified Lego Professional Adam Reed Tucker.
