Kids’ Building Contest featuring LEGO Bricks
The Home Builders Association of Northwest Indiana (HBA of NWI) will sponsor the first annual Children’s House Building Contest featuring LEGO® bricks on March 8, 2014. The contest will be held at the Home & Lifestyle Show, at the Porter County Expo Center in Valparaiso. Children in two age categories: ages 5 to 8 and 9 to 12, may participate. There are twenty spots open in each age category. Judges will score each child’s house based on five criteria: design, details, colors, landscaping and appeal. Vicky Gadd, executive officer, said, “We will give away first, second and third place prizes to the winners in each age group, and each child will receive a certificate and participation prize. We are very excited about sponsoring this fun event for children.” HBA of NWI is also seeking business sponsors for the event.
