Denmark’s biggest children’s LEGO fan is selected on Saturday
Five of the most talented LEGO builders in Denmark in the age between 8 and 12 years compete for the title as Denmark’s biggest LEGO fan on Saturday, November 10.
The finale of the competition takes place in LEGO House in Billund, where the five talented children builders must show their LEGO skills.
The competition of becoming the biggest LEGO fan in Denmark is arranged by LEGO House and GoLittle and was launched during the 1-year anniversary of LEGO House back in September. Creative kids from all over the country have submitted pictures of their most creative and imaginative LEGO creations, after which a jury has selected the five final participants on the criteria “creativity and quality of the model”.
Morten Resen, founder of GoLittle, says:
At GoLittle, our goal is to give children and parents more great experiences together. Therefore, it was obvious to nominate and award Denmark’s biggest LEGO fan in collaboration with LEGO House, a place where both children and adults can unleash their creativity as well as playing and building.
The only challenge is that my own son of nine, who is a huge LEGO fan, has still not forgiven me for the fact that he is not being able to compete. On the other hand, there are five other super cool and creative children attending the final.
A full day along with professional LEGO designers
The final five participants are Malthe, Alexander, Michiqa, Oskar and Josefine. Already on Friday the children arrive at Billund, where they are staying at Hotel LEGOLAND together with their families. On Saturday at 10 AM the competition starts at LEGO Square in LEGO House.
At the beginning the children will present the LEGO model, which they have already built, after which they will have a secret challenge that they will spend the rest of the day building. For the occasion, two LEGO designers will come up with tips and tricks for building different details.
During the day, Morten Resen is a compere and at 3 PM the jury will announce the skilled winner of the competition.
