Clifford Stull, eight, of South Amherst was the big winner of this year’s LEGO building contest sponsored by the Amherst Public Library.
Entries were accepted by email or actual photo and had to include the block creation along with the builder to be included in the contest. Stull’s name was chosen in a random drawing of 33 entries.
“It was great seeing emails come in with all the smiling faces, everyone so proud of their LEGO creation,” said Cheryl Ashton, youth services manager. “Clifford really went all out with his entry, which was photographed outdoors and included lots of detail.”
Nadia Teusan, two, of Avon, and Jack Mead, six, of Amherst, were chosen as runners-up.
Each winner received a library bag filled with goodies as well as a Target gift card so they can purchase more LEGOs!
The fun continues from 11 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Aug. 11 when the library hosts another LEGO flash mob. This hour of building is recommended for kids in kindergarten and older.
First prize in the library’s adult coloring contest went to Amy Shepherd. Second prizes were awarded to Rebecca Clark and Theresa Myosky.
Winners received coloring supplies to continue their creative works.
