Lego Challenge Winners 2021!

This year, we received 70 entries for our virtual Lego Challenge! There were two main categories, and entries were evaluated virtually by a panel of a dozen judges made up of library staff members from nearly every department in the building.

The first category was “Tales & Tails”. Participants created Lego scenes based on their own interpretations of this year’s summer learning program theme. We separated entries into four age divisions.

The second category was the ever-popular “Minifigure Challenge”! Participants set up their Lego minifigs in all sorts of fun and funny adventures around their home. This category had so many awesome entries that the judges had a hard time deciding!

And finally, we have a few honorable mentions, which were creations that did not quite fit into the categories but were great nonetheless!

Thank you to all of the children who participated this year, submitting photos of their creations, and then visiting the library to see all of the photo entries in the windows. We appreciate you and are proud of your creativity!
