Y’know all those little K’NEX pieces on your living room floor? The ones you’ve told your kids umpteen times to clean up and put away? Yeah, the ones you keep stepping on barefoot each morning. Those pieces.
Well, hold your rants for now because those little suckers could help your kid win $3,650 worth of prizes in the K’NEXpert Search challenge!
Your kids just need to create a super cool original K’NEX model and send in photos of their masterpieces. This year, the contest is broken down into 4 Grand Prize winners based on age groups: 5-6 years old; 7-8 years old; 9-11 years old; and 12-14 years old. What, no 40-50 years old category?
The K’NEXpert Search challenges young builders to design & submit a creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts and are judged on creativity, uniqueness and detail.
So what exactly can you, er, your kids win? A pretty sweet prize package, that’s what!
This year, grand prize winners will receive the coolest K’NEXpert prize package yet:
- An iPad Mini
- $250 gift card to Toys “R” Us
- $500 K’NEX credit code good toward a shopping spree at knex.com.
An additional eight finalists will each receive a $250 K’NEX credit code good towards a shopping spree at knex.com, a $100 Toys “R” Us gift card and a K’NEX t-shirt.
Take a look at some of the fun from last year’s K’NEXperts challenge:
