ARE YOU AUSTRALIA’S BIGGEST (JUNIOR) LEGO FAN?

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre seeks mini LEGO builders for dream opportunity


The search has begun to find Australia’s three biggest (yet littlest) LEGO fans! We have launched a competition to name our ‘Mini Model Builders’ for 2018.

Three little LEGO lovers will receive the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be crowned the 2018 Mini Model Builders at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre.  The lucky winners will receive playground bragging rights (and a LEGO trophy – of course!), plus some bricktastic perks including VIP invites to preview events, exclusive one-on-one building classes with the Master Model Builder, a free birthday party hosting up to 20 of their friends OR a free school excursion for their class, unlimited entry to the attraction for a year, a LEGOLAND Discovery Centre t-shirt, and a LEGO® badge.

To be in the running, children aged between 4-12 years must create a 30 second video introducing themselves (and their most imaginative LEGO creation) while answering the questions “Why do you want to be LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s Mini Model Builder?”, and "What's your favourite thing about LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne?". With the help and permission of a parent or guardian, entrants must submit their video via the online entry form.

Submissions will be evaluated based on the creativity and enthusiasm in the child’s response, along with the imagination conveyed in the child’s LEGO model. Points will also be given for social engagement, so share your post with family and friends to get likes or re-posts on your video! 36 finalists will be selected to compete in Australia’s first ‘LEGO Masters’ event – a children’s LEGO building competition that will be hosted at our attraction on Saturday 21 April 2018*.

The finalists will participate in a number of LEGO challenges that will be judged by the attraction’s Master Model Builder and will see him eventually declare the three grand final winners as the 2018 Mini Model Builders.
