The Lego competition is hosted by Lexington Builders.  Children ages 5-12 can compete (in two age groups) to build Lego masterpieces.  Children in the competition will receive a t-shirt and goodie bag.  Registration for both age groups is at 1PM.  Space is limited to the first 25 children.  2PM is the start of the 9 & Under competition.  3PM is the start of the 10-12 competition.  Kids will have 45 minutes to build their homes.  4PM is the awards ceremony.  (I noticed the registration times are listed differently on the site.  One page says both age groups are to register at 1PM, another says that the 10-12 group is to register at 2PM.  You can confirm the correct time by contacting Cathy Warner at the York Builders Office at 717-767-2444 x16 or Cathy@YorkBuilders.com).
