K'NEX® Launches Challenge For Young Builders

K'NEX announces its 16th annual K’NEXpert Search, launching June 8, 2015. The nationwide K’NEXpert Search challenges young builders to design and submit a creative, original model made entirely from K’NEX parts that will be judged on criteria such as originality, creativity, and complexity of the model.

The contest will have four Grand Prize Winners, one from each of the four different age group categories. Age groups include: 5-6 years old; 7-8 years old; 9-11 years old; and 12-14 years old. The four imaginative Grand Prize Winners will each receive a prize package valued at approximately $1000.

The K’NEXpert Search runs through August 28, 2015, with winners announced in October. Children can enter using the online registration form found on the K’NEX website, www.knexperts.com. Submissions must include up to 3 photos of the creation, and a short video or one-page summary describing how the child came up with the idea, how long the design took to build, and how many K’NEX pieces were used.
