Kyle Gross of Blair participated in the second annual LEGOLAND Discovery Center All-Star Building Challenge Jan. 18 at the Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo.

Kyle competed in the mini division, ages 8-11. There were three groups, each with about 20 kids, competing in the mini division.

The first challenge of the competition was to build an animal, either real or made-up.  The theme for the build was announced 15 minutes prior and then the kids had 30 minutes to build their creation. Kyle created “Two Frogs on a Lilly Pad.”

After the judging was complete, Kyle was selected to be in the Top 12 finalist build.

The challenge was to create something futuristic. Kyle decided to create “Hover Boots.” His creation earned him a third place finish and a $50 gift certificate to Crown Center.

Kyle is a second-grader at Blair South Primary School.
