Denver history abounded in our 2016 LEGO® Contest. We had 88 fantastic entries from 20 branches that highlighted Denver's rich and beautiful past. A big thanks goes to the Molly Brown House Museum for providing tickets to many winners who were able to experience a piece of history first hand, while other winners were able to hone their building skills with LEGO® books. Thank you everyone who participated this year.
Without further ado, our grand prize winner for the 2015 LEGO® Contest is The Cutest Penguin in the World by Jasmine, Nonso, and Nnenna from Green Valley Ranch's ASIC group. Also pictured, our staff contest winner, Dear Zoo, by Green Valley Ranch Librarian, Melody. We had more than 250 amazing entries this year from 15 of our library branches making for a very difficult decision. Thank you again to Denver Zoo for their sponsorship and inspiration with their Nature Connects exhibit. We cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with next year.
I'd like to first of all admit that, yes, I do realize that this beautiful book could first and foremost be described as a very large, elaborate advertisement for LEGO toys, and yes, my son has not stopped asking for any of the builder sets featured, but this in no...
The DPL system wide LEGO contest has come to an end with four fantastic winners selected. Each of the participating locations selected branch winners, whom all met at the Central Library for the final judging and some LEGO themed fun.
We played LEGO bingo, skee-ball and decorated bookmarks with LEGO bricks!
Thanks to all that participated! And thanks to The Tattered Cover, Chipotle, Jolyon Yates and the Colorado Mills LEGO Store for providing our prizes.
