A Lego building competition for 1st through 6th graders
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH 2023
9 AM - 12:30 PM
Block Kids is a national building competition for children in 1st through 6th grade. Each child is given 100 blocks and the choice of 3 other items (a small rock, string, foil, and poster board) to use their imagination in constructing a structure or project.
This award-winning national competition is sponsored by the NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation. Local winners advance to the regional competition, and one semi-finalist from each region is entered in the National program competition. Local and National prizes are awarded to the top three projects.
Participants have one hour to create something construction related without adult help or guidance using approved materials. Once complete, the student will meet with a judge or judges who will rate the project and ask the student a series of questions.
Each participant will receive a free t-shirt and goodie bag! Construction trades have interactive tables set up to share information on what they do in their trade.
