Do your geeklets have an idea for the next great invention? Well, LEGO is giving out $25,000 in savings bonds to salute kids’ smartest ideas.
In honor of National Inventors’ Month, LEGO Systems Inc. today launches its LEGO® CLICK! Awards, an essay contest for children ages 6 to 13. Now in its third year (formerly called the LEGO Creativity Awards), the LEGO CLICK! Awards are designed to inspire and celebrate children’s creativity, innovative thinking and inventive spirit. Five winning essays submitted by children between the ages of 6 and 13 will be each be awarded a $5,000 savings bond. To submit for the award, children must answer: “If you could invent anything, what would it be? Describe how to use it. How did you get the idea? What excites you about it?” before November 2, 2009. Entries will be judged by a panel of experts from the Smithsonian Institution and LEGO Systems.
