You think you have skills when it comes to Lego building? Put those skills to the test with a Lego building contest in Poughkeepsie.

The Poughkeepsie Plaza is holding their Lego Building contest and the format has changed this year due to construction ongoing at the plaza.

For the contest all work must be original, and no pre-assembled pieces or kits will be accepted. Only individual entries will be accepted, as this is not a team contest.

There are four different age groups: 4-6, 7&8, 9&10, and 11-15. The top 5 finalist in each age group will be selected and asked to come to the plaza to recreate their creation and be judged for a chance to win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the age group.

You must enter the contest by Thursday September 6. The 20 finalists will be selected by Monday September 10. 2018.

To enter the contest, you must fill out an entry form and upload a picture or video of your work with a brief description through the Poughkeepsie Plaza's website.
