Construction Competition for Kids

PITTSBURG, KANSAS - While Pitt State students enjoy their weekend, elementary school students compete in the university's Kansas Technology Center.

The annual Block Kids Contest equips first through sixth-grade students with a bag of legos, a pebble, yarn, and a square of aluminum foil.

Participants have 45-minutes to build a construction project.

"We just want to spark their interest in building industry and get them exposed to things in construction," one organizer said. "It gives them a chance to use their creativity, to actually build a project. Show us the different things they already know about construction."

The students' final products are judged, with prizes going to the top-three creations in every class, and an overall winner.
