Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association and Del Norte Credit Union Announce 2021 Online LEGO® Creations Contest for Northern New Mexico Kids
In an effort to stir creativity, encourage the next generation of home builders, and create some fun competition for Northern New Mexico kids (and their parents or guardians) the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association (SFAHBA) and Del Norte Credit Union (DNCU) are once again hosting an online Lego Creations Contest with great prizes.
Every contestant will receive a prize packet thanks to award sponsors, DNCU, MEOW WOLF, Somos Unidos Foundation (NM United), Daniel’s Insurance, and the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. 9 grand prize winners will take home LEGO® CLASSIC 484pc. Builder sets.
The contest is open to kids 12 and under living in the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association service territory which includes counties of Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Taos, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Mora, and Colfax. Participants are not required to use Legos, but creative building sets or other materials are acceptable. (ex. blocks, rocks, sticks or homemade adobe) Participants are invited to upload photos and short videos of their creations by May 2, through an online platform; SignUp Genius, which you can find at: SFAHBA.com/projects/legos, or upload directly to the Facebook event page.
The annual Lego competition normally takes place during the Santa Fe Home Show and Expo, but that event has been moved to an online event that showcases the Home Remodeling Industry in Northern New Mexico.
“The Lego competition has always been a favorite for us at DNCU, and we are so proud to be able to continue supporting this popular community event”, says Kim Currie, Chief Marketing Officer at Del Norte Credit Union. “With a year apart, we believe the competition brings our community together, even in a virtual setting—that’s what it’s always been about.”
“The annual Lego competition is something that kids always look forward to,” said Matt Segura, SFAHBA President. “Builders are all about creativity, breaking new ground, working with our hands. The Lego contest checks all those boxes! We decided holding the contest online would be fun for the kids and give us a chance to award some super prizes.”
Winners will be chosen by a panel of celebrity judges, which includes members of DNCU, SFAHBA, Somos-Unidos Foundation (NM United Soccer Franchise), Santa Fe Children’s Museum and Meow Wolf Artists.
Awards will be announced and prizes will be given out on May 15th at the “Builders’ Rendezvous”, an outdoor event hosted in the parking lot of SFAHBA offices. The event will follow all CDC and NMDOH guidelines. Grand Prize Winners who are unable to travel to Santa Fe will be mailed their prizes.
