Win the opportunity to have your school created in LEGO!

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is calling on school students to put on their LEGO® creative thinking caps, and create an artistic impression of their school. Students can create a drawing, painting, model, sculpture or digital design and submit to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre.

The winning design will be judged and selected by the attraction’s Master Model Builder, Dave Holder.

Dave will then build the school in LEGO bricks at 1:50 scale for display in the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s MINILAND, the LEGO® brick replica of Melbourne. The LEGO school will then be provided to the winning school for permanent ownership.

Students and teachers from the winning class will participate in a free School Workshop at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre and assist Master Model Builder Dave Holder in creating the LEGO® build.

All students from the winning year level will also win a free school excursion to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre.

The student that created the winning submission will win $100 worth of LEGO products from the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre store.
