The 24th Annual Building Competition

Congratulations to the winners of our annual Building Competition with LEGO Bricks!

Like past years, we will have goody bags available for all participants and prizes for winners. These will be available for pick up only at the Whistler Museum from Sunday, August 30th through Sunday, September 6th.

If you’re wondering how this year’s competition went, take a look at the run down below.

Though this year’s competition will be online, not everything will be different. Like past years, there will be 50 spots to register for beginning on Sunday, August 9th. The Whistler Museum will announce a theme and it will be your challenge to interpret that theme using LEGO bricks! When you submit the photo of your creation, you’ll include a description of what you’ve built and how you have interpreted the theme.

The Whistler Museum will be accepting LEGO creation submissions by email from Sunday, August 23rd to Saturday, August 29th. To make sure the competition is as fair as possible, we will be announcing the theme on Saturday, August 22nd and each child will have a week to send in their submission.

A proper submission must include: a photo of your child’s LEGO creation, and a completed participation form — including your child’s name, age, a description on how their creation relates to the theme and consent to sharing the photos. The participation form is available here.

To submit your child’s creation, please email the museum at programcoord@whistlermuseum.org

Like past years, we will have goody bags available for all participants and prizes for winners. These will be available for pick up only at the Whistler Museum from Sunday, August 30th through Sunday, September 6th. Prize winners will be announced Sunday, August 30th.

Winners will be judged on their LEGO creations as well as the description on how it relates to the theme. We recognize that since families will be using their own LEGO and not all families will have the same amounts, winners will not be judged on how big or extravagant their creations are, but on their creativity, originality and how well they relate what they’ve made with the theme.

Because this year the event will take place virtually, we are relying on you to ensure that the creations are your own (though we certainly know how tempting LEGO is to adults!).

The event is welcome to children ages 3+, $5 a child. Registration for the Building Competition is now closed.

Please don’t hesitate to email programcoord@whistlermuseum.org with any questions or concerns.
