Lego Type Model
Beginner (Grade 3-5)
Intermediate (Grade 6-8)
Advanced (Grade 9-12)
Lego-type models can be considered as “Any Other Craft” project for a State Fair entry, however a Champion placing does NOT mean it will automatically be going to the State Fair.
This project will encourage the member to use his or her imagination and ingenuity in creating an exhibit for the 4-H Fair. Overall design, construction techniques, creativity, sturdiness and balance will be some of the criteria used to judge this project. When building your model, follow these guidelines.
1. THERE IS TO BE NO GLUING OF BLOCKS TOGETHER OR PAINTING OF ANY BLOCKS.
2. All exhibits in this project must be of “free design” or “original design”. For example, if the level that you are enrolled in suggests that you may build a car, it must be of your own design, not a “car kit” that can be bought.
3. The beginning exhibits should be simple and should become more complex as you advance through the levels.
4. The use of the word “Lego®” is used only as a guide for the project. You are free to use any brand of “blocks” that are similar to “Lego®” to complete you project. NO K’NEX® will be allowed in this project.
5. Project size will be limited to 15” w. x 15” d. X 8” ht.
6. Models and Lego®’s need to be displayed on a solid non-flexible base, such as plywood, to provide sturdiness for the exhibit. They must stay within the size requirements of the projects.
1. Build a “fictional” Character or “thing”. Examples: an animal, a person, a statue, a totem pole, etc. (No multiple exhibits put into one.)
1. Build a structure such as a house, skyscraper, a barn, any type of building or some type of vehicle such as a car, truck, plane, tractor, farm implement, boat, etc. (No motorized parts in this division.)
1. Build and exhibit two of any related objects (new exhibits) from either Beginner or Intermediate. Examples could be two animals, two statues, two cars, etc. Motorized parts may be used in this division.
