Grand Rapids, MI – Get your LEGO® bricks ready. The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) in collaboration with Meijer announced today that it’s now accepting entries for the “Meijer Dream it, Build it Building Contest” - a contest with LEGO® bricks. The contest is open now through June 7, and promises to engage the public in creativity, architecture and art using the LEGO® brick as a medium.
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, and your 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.
