LEGO is running a new contest at their ReBrick website, this time for LEGO robotics fans. Remember that contests at ReBrick are for teen and adult LEGO fans, so you need to be at least 13-years-old to enter. Below are the details on how to enter and what you can win. 🙂
Here is the description of the LEGO SuperBots Contest: Create a video of your LEGO robot helping you do something super! It’s time to do some superpower thinking and show us your SuperBot! Make it super cool, super smart, or super fun, and tell us what makes your robot a SuperBot – and what dilemma, challenge, or chore it rescues you from! The greatest SuperBot will send the winner on a super-duper trip to LEGO World Copenhagen.
And here are some details on how to enter the contest: Create a robot using LEGO bricks and your LEGO MINDSTORMS robot (EV3 or earlier model) or LEGO Power Functions to solve an everyday challenge of your choosing. Create a 15-30 seconds video showing your creation in action. Upload your video to the video hosting site of your choice, such as YouTube. Enter the contest by going to the “submit entry” page on ReBrick and submit maximum 5 screenshots from your video. Make sure to also add the link to your video before you submit. Use the description field to describe your robot and its features. When you receive a “Success!” pop-up notification after clicking “submit” on the entry submission page, your entry has successfully been submitted. ReBrick’s moderation team will review it within 1-3 working days to make sure it fits all the contest rules. The deadline to enter is August 18th, 2017 at 10:00AM EST. If you’re not sure what time zone you’re in you can use an online time zone converter.
A panel of judges from the LEGO MINDSTORMS team will select one grand prize winner and 2 runner-ups. They will judge entries upon: super-factor originality – 25%, attention to contest theme – 25%, innovative building techniques and functions – 25%, and innovative use of LEGO elements – 25%. In addition, three bonus prize winners will be selected at random. The winner will be contacted on the email address associated with their LEGO ID account after August 28th, 2017 and announced on ReBrick when the winner has returned the signed Winner’s Certification Documents. A winner who does not return their Winner’s Certification Document within one week of receiving it will be disqualified, and a new winner will be selected.
There will be one grand prize winner, who will receive a trip for two to LEGO World Copenhagen 2018 in February, including transportation and hotel room stay, the #31313 MINDSTORMS EV3 signed by a LEGO MINDSTORMS designer, and a LEGO MINDSTORMS T-shirt. There will also be two runner up winners, who will receive the #31313 MINDSTORMS EV3 signed by a LEGO MINDSTORMS designer, and a LEGO MINDSTORMS T-shirt. And, there will be three bonus winners, who will receive a LEGO notebook and brick key chain, and a LEGO MINDSTORMS T-shirt.
So, if you have the LEGO MINDSTORMS kit, or any LEGO Power Functions elements to make a robot, this is your chance to show your creative skills! When you are ready to enter, head over to the LEGO SuperBots Contest page, and make sure you read all the rules. Also, remember that the LEGO Cars 3 Brick Poster Contest is still open for a few more days.
