The Lewis & Clark Library Branches Team-up for a #LoveYourLibraryLEGO® Program!
January 25, 2021 (Helena, MT)—Each week during the month of February, the Lewis & Clark Library Branch libraries in Augusta, East Helena, Lincoln, and the Bookmobile will host a LEGO® building contest for students in grades K-8. The contest is designed to help students practice building, exploring, and being creative with LEGOs®.
Each week in February, students will be challenged to build a creation based on the weekly theme and then share a photo of the creation with the Library to potentially win prizes. Photos will go into an online gallery for all to enjoy. The Lewis & Clark Library Foundation will judge the online submissions and pick four prize winners each week to receive a LEGO®book. Each week that participants submit a photo, they will automatically be entered into a drawing for 1 of 2 Kindle Fires. The drawing for the Kindle Fires will occur at the end of the month.
Take a photo of your creation and submit it for the online gallery and contest by emailing it to AEckerson@lclibrary.orgas a medium sized jpeg file. Make sure your submissions are visible in photos and are submitted in time for the weekly themes. Please include your age, name, an adult's name and contact information, as well as permission to use your photo on the Library's website and social media pages. The creations will be judged on creativity and originality (40%), presentation (25%), building skill based on age of entry (25%), and following contest rules (10%). Submissions must be in by the Sunday at midnight of each week to be included in the judging.
All submissions will be added to our virtual Lego display on the Library website at, https://www.lclibrary.org/293/East-Helena-Branch-Exhibits.
