Is it just Legos, or can my preschooler use Duplo?
Duplo are Lego! Duplo projects are encouraged and frequent. Thanks for asking!
Can you submit something they submitted from years past?
You're welcome to, but it's not likely to win!
I was wondering if one person is allowed to submit multiple projects or if just one is allowed. Also, I am a little confused about the prizing/placing system. If I understand correctly, there are three winners in each age group that get prizes, and others get medals based on categories. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I apologize, my questions have been answered.
In what way should we submit a group project? Can the people in that group already have individual projects?
Yep, people in a group can have individual projects. Limit one individual project per person, but we won't worry about it for groups. Just submit the form once for a group project and put all builder's names in the name field. You should submit it under the age range of the oldest builder. That help? Just let us know if you have any other questions!
If I'm in a group, what do I put in the full name spot?
Put the names and ages of each group member! Thanks for asking!
