Brick by brick — that’s how entries will be working to get their creations ready for the second annual Cochrane Lego Contest.

To be held April 12 and 13 at St. Andrew’s United Church, the competition aims to encourage children and youth to put their imaginations to work, said contest organizer Billy MacLeod.

“Kids can use their imagination to come up with creative designs,” said MacLeod. “Even walking through and looking at the structures can fuel creativity — it’s pretty neat.”

Last year’s creations included an intricate ski hill and a swimming pool design.

This year’s competition boasts a roster of about 110 entries, all of who will be dropping their masterpieces off at the church for judging on Friday, April 12 between 6 and 8 p.m. Six judges will be examining the designs.

All entries — including the winners — will be on display for a public viewing April 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
