Entries sought for annual Lego Contest & Exhibit

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) invites creators of all ages to design and build original Lego sculptures and display them at the Museum in BMAC's 14th Annual Lego Contest & Exhibit in November.

Entries must be delivered to BMAC on Monday, Nov. 8, 4 to 6 p.m. An online entry form must be submitted before dropping off sculptures, along with a $5 entry fee.

Contest guidelines and entry forms are available at brattleboromuseum.org. Participants may call BMAC at 802-257-0124, ext. 101, with any questions.

BMAC will display every entry submitted to the contest from Thursday, Nov. 11 through Sunday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission to the museum during that time is pay-as-you-wish. To make a reservation, visit brattleboromuseum.org/visit. Masks and social distancing are required.

The awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 5:30 p.m. at the museum; the ceremony will also be livestreamed.

A panel of judges will award prizes based on creativity and craftsmanship in six age groups: preschool, grades K–2, grades 3–5, grades 6–8, grades 9–12, adult, and adult/child collaborations. Other prizes will be awarded at the judges' discretion.

Every contestant will receive a personalized certificate of participation.

Entries from past years have included a replica of BMAC, an amusement park, a model of Brattleboro's Harris Hill ski jump, and a working pinball machine.

“One thing we want to emphasize is that, although it's a contest, no one is really focused on the competition,” said BMAC Director Danny Lichtenfeld in a news release. “This is all about celebrating creativity and having fun.”
