For the sixth year in a row the Denver Public Library system has put on their annual Lego building contest on display, featuring works from kids and families from all over the city.
As a longtime Lego maniac, I thought it would be fun to take a well-lit look at this year’s entries.
The contest, says Denver Public Library spokesperson Chris Henning, helps “children and teens think through engineering concepts” and stimulate their imaginations, all in a setting where they can work together with their families and friends. This fits into their mission statement, which includes mandates to “provide enjoyment” and “strengthen our community.”
