2020 LEGO® Building Contest: The Great LEGO® Bake Off

Attention Builders! It’s time for our annual LEGO® Building Contest. This year's theme is The Great LEGO® Bake Off. You can enter any food related creation, be it a restaurant, a food dish, or a food fight. There are multiple divisions based on age: K-2nd, 3rd-4th, 5th-6th, 7th-8th, 9th-adult. Contestants may enter individually or as part of a team. Registration begins November 21 and the contest will take place January 2. Entries must be dropped off between 9:00 AM-12:00 PM on the day of the contest. A public viewing will be held from 3:00-6:00 PM, and an awards ceremony from 7:00-8:00 PM.  Patrons will have the opportunity to cast their vote for a Popular Vote winner separately from age category winners that will be chosen by our judges.

Contest Rules

  1. Use your own LEGO®, Duplo, Megablocks or other LEGO® compatible plastic bricks, motors and materials.
  2. Entries must be your own creation, not a LEGO® designed kit or a project found online, in a book, or in a magazine.
  3. Your creation may not be larger than 2 feet x 2 feet x 2 feet.
  4. Participants must register online (beginning November 21) to ensure a space for display. Please also fill out the paper entry form (downloadable from the CPL web site) and bring it with you when you drop off your entry.
  5. Each person may enter only once. You may enter as an individual OR as part of a team but not both. Entering as a team is a way for families and friends to build together. Team entries will be judged in the age category of the oldest team member.
  6. You must adhere to the following participation schedule (see below).
  7. Canton Public Library cannot assume responsibility of LEGO® creations while they are on display, though we will have someone monitoring the room at all times.
