If you’re creative, love Legos, want to have a blast, and meet some really cool Lego maniacs (and you are fourteen or younger) then, you should enter Box of Light’s first ever Lego Competition at the Box of Light Digital Arts Studio within the Moose Exchange at 203 West Main Street, Bloomsburg on Friday, May 4th from 6:00-9:00 pm.
Kids ages 5-14 can enter one or two events: Lego Build Competition and Lego Stop Action Film Competition. Each event will last one hour.
In the Lego Build Competition, teams are given a building task, a box of Legos and one hour to complete the building task. In the Lego Stop Action Film Competition, teams will be each have a computer and digital camera setup, a box of Legos and a Box Of Light staff member to help them create their stop action film. Again, the teams will have one hour in which to create their Lego film.
According to Abbi Parker, Box Of Light’s Educational Director, participants do not have to know how to create a stop action film in order to enter. “Stop action animation is simple and we’ll make sure each team succeeds in making their film.”
Teams are encouraged to register online at www.boxoflight.org prior to the event. Registration on the day of the competition begins at 5:00 pm with the competition beginning at 6:00 pm. Teams consist of 2-3 members and each event costs $15 per team.
Certificates will be given for creativity, design concept, teamwork, best storyline, and more.
