Emcee Steven Steele watches over dozens of students as they participate in the Westerville City Schools annual LEGO competition.
Dozens of students and their families gathered at Westerville North High School on Saturday morning, March 10, for the 12th annual Westerville City Schools LEGO Competition, hosted by the Westerville North High School Music Boosters. Each child was given one hour to create something made from LEGOs. Volunteers judged them and awards were handed out in categories (broken down by grade levels) that included creativity and realism. Winners won boxed sets of LEGOs. Genoa Middle School sixth grade student Colin Smiley won the Best of Show Grand Champion prize for his design, a scene from the Battle of Courosant. He described his creation as follows: “The Separatists have launched their final attack on the Republic capital. The Clones and Jedi must fight for everything – this is the final battle!”
Sponsors included Ability Chiropractic, Barry’s Bagels, Giant Eagle, Kroger, Meijer, Target and Westerville North Marching Band parents. The event benefitted the Westerville North High School Marching Band.
