Lego Building Contest


One of the Lego creations submitted for the contest. Photo Submitted

The Vermilion Library recently hosted a Lego building competition. In order to enter, children were asked to send photos of their creations to the event organizers. The event was deemed a huge success with over 40 pictures submitted by children before the deadline of August 24. By sending a photo of a Lego creation children were entered into a draw with a chance to win prizes. Out of all these submissions six won prizes in the draw, including a Lego kit, deck of cards, and some summer reading.

The Vermilion library wanted to give a huge “shout out” to Cornerstone Co-op for subsidizing the cost of one of the prizes. In addition to the Lego building contest the Vermilion Library also had other programs this summer, they had a reading program, with children taking home a summer kit with crafts, puzzles, and activities. They also had the opportunity to read for over 100 children this summer as well as host multiple outdoor activities.

And thanks to donors like their recent anonymous contributor who provided $100 to the reading program so children will continue to have the opportunity to participate in these activities.
