Attention all Master Builders!

Hooray!

It’s time to start building.

We are holding a school-based Brixhibition Competition in June.

We are also introducing two new Competition categories this year (open to both Primary and Secondary students): 

‘Design your own mini-figure’ and ‘Decorate a brick’

Entry forms will be available from the Primary Campus library from Wednesday 27th May.

Entries for the ‘Design your own mini-figure’ and ‘Decorate a brick’ competitions need to be given to Mrs Paterson (2P, at the end of C Block) by Friday 12th June.  

‘Lego mini-figure’ and ‘Decorate a brick’ Competitions

  • Entries must be submitted on the A4 template provided to be eligible for the competition (templates will be available from the Primary library and entries can be returned to the library).
  • One entry per person in each competition. Please note that entries with inappropriate words or images (including weapons) will not be accepted.
  • The design/decorations for both competitions must be the student’s own original work.
  • Only decorate the Lego brick and leave the background white (so that your design can be easily cut out to help create our own mega brick wall display J).
  • Lego mini-figures can have features drawn outside of the blackline figure as needed (for example hair) but no background (this will help your design to stand out).
  • All entries need to include the designer’s first and last name and grade on the back in the space provided or will not be considered.
  • Individual entries only this year.
  • There will be 5 categories for each competition:

Kinder-Prep               Grade 1-2              Grade 3-4              Grade 5-6              Secondary*

Each category age winner will receive a certificate and the overall winner in each competition will also receive a Lego themed prize (*tbc, depending on the level of Secondary interest, there may also be a separate Primary and Secondary winner for both the Mini-figure and Brick Competitions)

Lego Model Competition

  • Each Lego model/display can have a maximum size of 52cm x 52cm x 52cm, or no larger than four 32x32 cm Lego baseplates.
  • There are three official age categories for the competition:

√ Prep-Grade 2

√ Grade 3-Grade 4

√ Grade 5-Grade 6

BUT LIL, Kinder, and Secondary students are welcome to exhibit their models as well 

  • Each Lego display must be an original or freelance design* and not made from a Lego kit (students are welcome to exhibit models from kits but these entries will not be included in the official competition)
  • Individual entries only this year
  • The model must only be made out of standard Lego bricks (and is not to include other materials)

* Some adult help is allowed, but the Lego structure should mainly be designed and built by the student

Entries for the LEGO model competition need to be brought to the LiL area (through the library) before school on Monday 15th June between 8:20- 8:40am or after school between 3:00-3:15pm. (If possible, please bring your model in a cardboard box so that your child can independently carry it into school.)

All models will need to be collected and taken home on the afternoon of Thursday 18th June. Mrs Paterson will be available in the LiL area between 12:40-1pm and between 3:00- 3:30pm to help students to collect their models. 

Each age category winner will receive a medal and the overall winning student from Penguin will receive a medal and vouchers from: Leven River Cruise, Beaconsfield Heritage Museum, and Richmond Gaol. Thank you to all of the sponsors.

Winners will be announced the following week at our Virtual Assembly.

Thank you and good luck

Mrs Paterson
