The Vancouver LEGO Games rounds up the most passionate Lego builders to compete for prizes judged according to various age groups (5-6 years, 7-8 years, 9-10 years, 11-13 years, 14-17 years, and adult 18+). Prizes are awarded to the most innovative and unique creations. This year’s event will have more prizes and will take place at a larger venue. The Vancouver LEGO Games 2013 will raise money for the LEGO Foundation and Love Global Foundation:
The Lego Foundation endeavors to inspire the creative builders of future generations to come. Their goal is to provide children with the tools and resources to ensure a positive understanding and embracement of the power of play. The Lego Foundation works to catalyze the creation of a better world by embracing the act of playing to stimulate the imagination, ultimately positively affecting the ability of children to create, learn, and grow.
Love Global Foundation:
A website that allows anyone to easily provide support across the globe to missionaries.
