Star Wars: Force for Change and FIRST LEGO League are joining together to hold a contest for fans of all of the above. The contest is open for kids (and adults) ages 13 and up. They can enter by sharing a photo of a LEGO Star Wars-inspired design on Instagram or Twitter using #LEGOStarWarsHolidayContest. Creativity is key in this contest, and so is an understanding of the holiday spirit and the galaxy far, far away.
The grand prize winner will receive a LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon set and a FIRST LEGO League team or classroom registration. The league introduces students around the world to the basics of robotics and engineering, using LEGO bricks to come up with innovative designs and good, old-fashioned teamwork.
Four runners-up with receive a LEGO Star Wars The Child, LEGO Star Wars Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter, LEGO Star Wars Sith TIE Fighter, LEGO Star Wars AT-AT, and a LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest. In conclusion, I’ve never wanted to come in second place in something more.
The contest’s judges include Star Wars Actress Kelly Marie Tran, LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, and FIRST LEGO League alumni Sanjay and Arvind Seshan.
Teens who don’t have access to enough LEGOs to make their design idea a reality can also virtually build LEGO blocks using LEGO Digital Designer or LEGO Bricklink studio. All entries need to be submitted on social media by Dec. 23 at 11:59 p.m. PST to be included. Find the official rules for the U.S. and Canada here.
